Fishing has been spotty. Sat. evening, lots of bugs & rising fish,but no takers... Sunday evening i got a few but misteriously, Krayfish landed just one in the Pm. Yesterday, Tim Robinson & I did very well in the Am, but the evening was slow. Today the started with several quick fish, but tapered off quickly, until Skybay hooked a giant! But like many big fish, he got away!

Awesome fish but why are there two pictures of different guys holding the same fish? Wasn't holding it out of the water once enough for that lovely trout?

Well, I think I lost the fish of my lifetime; it was long as a leg and heavy as an elephant,
I can’t sleep to think about it. It bent 7WT rod as a grass and get away to main current with 3X/4X tippet.

Not a wise choice.
This is what a 20+ inch brown can do to break your heart and keep you coming back to the Main Stem.

"The trout swam away fine wbranch. Go rain on someone else's parade."

Perhaps, but you might enjoy this article provided by Mark Glassmaker an Alaskan fishing guide.

"Now that we have covered the basics of preserving your catch for the dinner table, lets look at the proper etiquette for releasing fish. A recent study done at Queens University in Ontario, Canada which looked at physiological effects of brief air exposure in exhaustively exercised (played out) rainbow trout (oncorhynchus mykiss), is very revealing and educational toward showing just how precarious and detrimental, improper catch and releasing fishing can be. I will be the first to say that even as a professional fishing guide and well accomplished recreational sportfisherman, I did not know all the facts when it comes to releasing the quarry of my angling efforts.

I will attempt to share with you the most scientifically substantiated information I have seen on catch and release methods. The study looked at survival rates of played out rainbow trout that were also exposed to air for 60 seconds, 30 seconds, and 0 seconds. Additionally, the survival rates on non-exercised rainbow trout were used as a control for the study. Get ready, the results are surprising.

As you’d expect, the control group had a 100% survival rate. The rainbow trout that were exhaustively exercised and not exposed to air survived at an 88% rate. However, the rate of survival for fish exposed to air for 30 seconds was only 62%, and those that were held out of the water for 60 seconds had a mere 28% chance of living to fight another day. The researchers attributed the higher mortality among fish exposed to air to a significant reduction of oxygen content in the fish’s blood.

If these statistics leave you wondering or unconvinced, consider the following analogy: Holding a fish out of the water for 60 seconds or even 30 seconds would be like a human running full speed for a half an hour and then immediately being submerged in water for up to one full minute. Many of us would not fare very well under those conditions and if we did survive, we’d surely carry some ill effects, some possibly permanent.

This study will change the pace of my Kodak moment and expedite the time it takes me to put my catch back into the water. Ideally, keeping the fish submerged in the water while you take pictures will help tremendously toward making sure the fish doesn’t eventually go belly up.

Some other important methods for handling fish you intend to release include touching the fish as little as possible, not squeezing the fish, and never putting your fingers inside the fish’s gills. The more you handle a fish and run your hand(s) along its sides, the more that fish is likely to be depleted of its protective slime layer, thus increasing its risk of fungal infection and decreasing its ability to gracefully cut through the water.

After reading this article I know my philosophy for my trout photo ops is going to change dramatically.
