Willdeb is young and learning about fishing.

Will,
The best way to release fish properly is to minimize the amount of time that the fish is out of the water, handle the fish gently, and try to ensure that fish are not hooked deeply. Fishing with flies is a good way to get fewer deep hookings. If you have fished with bait, you may have noticed that fish sometimes swallow the bait deeply and often bleed when you try to unhook them. Fish hooked deeply like this will probably not survive. Fish that are bleeding will almost certainly die......so you don't want deep hooked fish. If possible, when you bring the fish in, just grab the hook and shake the fish loose. If you want to take a picture, a landing net will help too. I have found that, if you have a trout that is thrashing around in the water, if you gently turn them over on to their back, they will relax making it easier to unhook them.

Barbless hooks or at least pinching your barbs down is a lifesaver. I lose no more fish now than I did using barbed hooks.

Use forceps or needle nose pliers , try not to touch 'em as the slime on fish is like a barrier , get 'em in as quick as you can , get 'em back in as quick as you can using only the forceps or pliers , no hands.

If you have to touch them, wet your hands first.

The thing that I have always wondered is if by chance you catch a fish and it is bleeding I have always been told that it will not survive. So if you are in a DHALO section should you still release that fish back into its habitat and let nature take its course?

Going to catch heck for this but here goes. Why do you need a picture? Get the fish in asap. Wet hands whether you bring the fish to hand or net. Gently get the hook (fly) out quickly, fine point hemos are great and so are barbless hooks. Release fish. I have no pictures of any trout that I've caught. Don't need to share pictures with anyone. These are my memories. Just my humble opinion.

Play the fish quickly, use a landing net , wet your hands, use barbless hooks, and use forceps. I don't buy that about bleeding fish being dead. I've never seen a study telling us it's true.
