I rather like the picture. Having never caught one, I am envious.

While we sure appreciate you comments and ratings to the pictures posted here, please notice that it is the photography we rate - not the fishing ethics.

In the above case I fail to see how the fact that the fly line is loosely draped around the fish' tail can in any way earn this in all ways fine picture a rating of "Not good - This is a bad picture - technically and content wise". It is sharp, well exposed, nicely presented and contains a live fish, which is definitely about to be released. What's the problem with that? My personal rating is a 5 - "A great image in all respects".


Hmm, in the golden spot I can see you just managed to strangulate the fish by its tail. 1 to you, dude!
