I used to kill and eat trout left and right. Now I can't. I've kept one trout in the last 5 months.

Guys, there is no shame in taking a few stockers home for the dinner table. As Mr. Durniak is know for saying "feel free to take some trout home, I will make more!".

Definitely nothing wrong with it. Just personal choice over time.

I want my bows to grow big and strong

There aren’t many things better than fried fish!

What technique did you use fishing trout magnets?

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?!

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

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.
