    Now I am hungry for some trout, either baked or fried. Love them cooked either way.

      I am a staunch advocate for catch and release only practices as well!
      I release the non trout species to the water, and release the trout
      ..... to the grease.
      My friend Buckman also has a tramp stamp tattoo that says "RELEASE TO THE GREASE!"
      I'm pretty sure it is referencing trout, but with him, who knows?!

Ordered an eagle claw featherlight 7í fly rod after getting home to replace it. After getting home, baked a few with some lemon pepper, lots of butter, sea salt and foil. Also fried up a few the next day in cornmeal salt lemon pepper and old bay.

        Your stock of ammo is quite impressive. Flies, dough bait, jigs, worms. I dig it. Variety is the spice of life!!

          The rainbows ain't supposed to be here, anyways.
          The first thing scripture tells us about man is that we're made in the image of God. The second thing it says is that man should have dominion over the fishes of the sea.

            You should consider fishing with only barbless hooks like I do. I can't imagine wanting to harm a majestic little rainbowed warrior, and barbless hooks enable me to quickly reel in my fish and release them without touching them at all! And... If you hook a larger than average specimen who is exerting too much energy, more often than not you can let the line go slack and the hook will come out. I try not to let my trout get tuckered out too much, their health is much more important than a photo.

            P.S. I feel your pain about losing a fish 5 months ago. A couple years ago, while fishing on the Chattahoochee DH in June, I lost my train of thought while drifting a nymph in a deep hole. I was hungry, and was eating a granola bar, and lost my focus. All of a sudden, my rod bowed over from the tug of a hungry fish! I actually dropped my granola bar (and wrapper) in the river. After an epic battle, I finally got the fish close to my net and he went belly up and died. He Died. I still haven't forgave myself. I should have never been drifting a nymph while multi-tasking with my granola energy pack. That 10.387 inch rainbow is now buried next to my pet cat, Fluffy, who tragically lost his life at the behest of a garbage truck squishing him.
            Please release all trout! They are too pretty to kill!

                          I guess I'll have to call TIPS. Wanton waste of wildlife.

                            And several days later a 14Ē brown was found floating downstream. A postmortem revealed the poor critter had ingested half a granola bar and the entire plastic wrapper.

                              Tragically, it's not a joke. I should have known better than to trout fish when the water temperature is 83 degrees. I accept responsibility for this loss to the fishery.
                              Please release all trout! They are too pretty to kill!

                                The only redeeming part of this story is the corn kernel in the trout's belly grew to the sky where a great treasure could be found.
