Fly Fishing: A couple distractions

Well, of course, the photograph is a distraction…right? Beautiful fish quickly brought in and released. The fish can be over taxed with long runs and thrashing about once netted or in the shallows. This Rainbow Trout was taken on a Green Cope’s Damsel. Below are two links: one is to Tony Bishop’s piece on how to play & land a fish and the other is to video by Jerry Criss re a Damsel pattern utilizing Arctic Fox. Both pieces have very useful information.

Fly Fishing: ‘Exhaustion Kills’ (Catch & Release Review)

CATCH & RELEASE

“What happens AFTER the hook imbeds in a trout’s jaw, has a major impact on whether or not the fish can be successfully released. For the catch and release fisherman, the two most important factors to consider are “playing time” and “time out of water”.

Trout that were brought to hand after being “played out” (on their sides) were the most vulnerable. An Ontario study shows that to hold a “played out” rainbow trout out of the water for SIXTY SECONDS, gives that fish a 28% chance at survival when released.

If that played out rainbow was held out of the water for 30 seconds, it would have had a 62% chance of survival. Even if that rainbow was kept completely submerged, and the hook carefully removed, it would still die 12% of the time.

The take home message is clear . . . Bring those fish in QUICKLY! Exhaustion kills!
