Dam, I was hoping the owner of this post would figure that out. Thanks Acristickid for spilling the flies (beans).

I'm pretty sure that if you squeeze a little of his/hers poop out and see corn - Guess what there feeding on?

I don't do it. Something extra to carry that just ain't worth it.

That said, I've got no problem with it either. Ok, maybe if the water is warm, you don't wanna handle it that long. Or if you know the fish is starving or something, not good. But in most cases, no problem.

I care about improving the % of fish that survive angler encounters. Not too concerned about their comfort level during the ordeal, though. As someone said, this is a blood sport. If you are worried if they feel a little pain, get nervous, or miss a meal, well, you shouldn't be dragging them around on pointed hooks. In the end, I want to preserve fisheries and populations, not individual fish.

Soooo I guess this would be the wrong place to roll out my new line of flexible sigmoidiscopes for trout...... Trout need a good colonoscopy once in a while too you know

See, now you're thinking. With all of this crap going on in medicine, I figure we gotta come up with ways to cut health care costs. So, I have come up with a couple of ideas.

My 1st idea was for the home vasectomy kit. You actually get 3 kits in 1. You use the 1st 2 to practice on your cat and your dog and then you are up...

See, the home colonoscopy kit could be the same way. Shoot, if you can snake the colon of a brook trout...a human colon is nothing!

well. we don't know how harmful it is. a blood sport? haven't drawn blood all season. How about ripping their heads off? I got a deal with the fish. if I can fool them, fight them to the net, they get released quickly. I got a line....you got no line? sticking a tube into a trouts stomach? no way.

Since the owner of this post has not made any comments...I'm led to believe that he either got scared off or never had any intentions of using a stomach pump on trout. It's like... he only wanted to read our reactions.

A while back when I was doing some research on big spring I used it a few times to get a match on midge colors and sizes, but after later realizing that I really didn't even need it. Once you know your stream(s) well you won't need it, whenever inserting the pump, do not go further than an inch into the throat, pump once, and release. One pump is usually enough
