I disagree about the whole net thing.
The health of our trout fisheries proves that standard catch and release, even with bare dry hands barbed hooks and fish flopping in the grass doesn't affect the fishery.
Practicing catch and release is plenty...
It's a blood sport some fish are going to die or get mangled no matter what we do and we don't need to be policing other people unless they are breaking the law.
You did? Not meI gotta say I expected a little more out of you.
