Just thought this was a good article for all:


http://www.midcurrent.com/flyfishing/measuring_trout.aspx

from now on when you post a pig make sure pic includes your forarm and there will never be a debate again on if it was 19" or 20+".

except its 12 inches "From the elbow to the bump in my wrist"
on my arm...hmmmmmm

I know whenever I take a pic of a pig I'll just include that guys arm....

Actually, I used this same method once on here for a fish in question. It was written off as ridiculous by the other posters...

Same with me anything over 16" would be off the charts. Oh well just trying to pass along another means for a quick reference on stream measurement to those that it could apply. Personally I'm amused with the pics of the rod in the mouth but a fish up against an arm would be a close second!

I don't really care. If someone catches a fish and I wasn't there, it can be as big as he wants it to be...I was trying to help that day by sharing that method. I won't make that mistake again.

I would take a little kid with me and use their arm in the picture.

I need all the help I can get.

Why length ?
Fish vary considerably in weight over a year-
JM's day saving 8 inch dry taker could vary as much as an ounce.

Personally I like to use my hand, from a certain line on the wrist to the tip of the middle finger. works better for the little fish which i seem to catch a lot of.

Another idea... something else to put in your pack.

Or you could just get a Measure Net. A reasonably priced and very functional net that allows quick accurate measurement. They also have replacement net bags to go on the frame you already have.

Just use a paint marker and mark your rod every 2 inches. I think this is the easiest way.
