Spotted Beauty…

“A trout is a moment of beauty known only to those who seek it.”
Arnold Gingrich

Ah, but that’s why I share the images and beauty for the non-seekers…so they know. Arnold probably was not caught up in fiddling with a camera, but rather simply gazed down and took it all in, later writing about it.

Lines & Shadows…..

I pushed my old Pentax Optio W60 into the net with the trout, beneath the water and snapped this shot. The lines and shadows from the net and the light penetrating the dorsal fin were unexpected. Light, beautiful light. Originally, the main reason I bought the Optio was to experiment with underwater shots for steelhead, salmon and trout when releasing them back, beneath the surface. It has become my backup secondary camera and I have never really used it as anticipated. If I can keep the water around the fish less turbid, at the point of release, I will try more underwater shots.

Fly Fishing: Play The Fish & Release It Safely

Photography/Fly Fishing/Net/Catch & Release/Outdoors

Whether a fish is 6″ or much bigger, the intent of a catch & releasing fly fisher is to enjoy the fight but get the fish in sooner than later so the fish is not overly stressed. On the front end, that means using gear that is matched to the size fish you are fishing over to have enough ‘back bone’ to get the fish in quickly.

Also, when the fish is near, using a net for bigger fish is a good way to safely control the fish. Attempting to release fish by hand/pliers/forceps (without bringing into a net) can be done but be careful to not let the fish thrash about on the rocks, boat floor, apron or grass. Fish smaller than 16-18″ can be controlled by drawing the fish toward you, holding the tippet and using the pliers to grasp the fly and back out the barbless hook. Bigger fish may need to slide into a net.

Head In Net B

Now with a net, time can be wasted and the fish taxed if the fish does not slide into the net head first. Tail first and they will often propel out using their powerful tail. Head first they are usually calmer, but may rotate in the bottom of the net. Keeping the fish calm, in the net, is helpful as you attempt to release the hook. My wife incessantly talks to the fish. I try to move gently and precisely to reduce the time in the net.

Trout Tail Out SB

Here the Trout went into the net tail first and within seconds it comes out head first in a hurry.

Fish Head First SB

Just in head first………

Trout into Net SB

Optimum, sliding in head first and horizontal…….

Ah, tail first not working here….the Trout is not cooperating

Get them in, admire them and get them back in safely. All Trout caught/released. Click on pics
