Gone are the Day's of Trout on a Stick

Back-in-the-day the way to document a good day's fishing was to knock them on the head with a priest and keep them cool until the trip home.  I can't be sure that these fish were eaten, but I hope so...

A Day's Catch at Big Lagoon 1908

While I do practice catch and release there are still time's I'll knock one on the head for dinner that night (always a stockies).  It mite be a requirement some parts, like Rockies where the motto is EMBT (Eat more Brook Trout), to help with the recovery of Greenback Cutthroat Trout.  Brook Trout are not a native trout to the Rockies and compete with the Greenback Cutthroat Trout, so removing non-native trout from some streams is necessary so native trout may flourish. 


Photographs and videos are a great way to show off your catch. Today with the wide range of underwater camera getting cheaper and easier to document your catch.  With iMovie and YouTube your not limited to sharing with just your friends.  There are plenty of waterproof camera on the market and I sure you'll fine one to fit budget.

  1. I couldn't agree more. I always practice C.P.R. (catch, photo and release)! Keep up the good work!
