When you look at this beautiful fish do you think of meat? A dead, gutted fish cut into sections for consumption? I see beauty, power, respect for a short life. Too much reverence for an obvious food source? For me every spot, every hue of color is a beautiful object for consideration. Seduced to the fly, stressed to the net…yes. Admired, held & photographed. Rested and released to what future I am never certain. Yet for me, this way, I am more centered with nature than by few other means.
