Released every Silver caught as they were "NATIVE". Over half turned belly up and drifted down into the darkness. VERY frustrating!!!

You are suppose to give them Fish CPR before letting them go!

I am no fisherman, never had much luck, or knowledge of the subject.

Some years back, I was pretty good at catch n release, but had nothing to do with fishing.

I know 2014 does fly fishing, likely in some beautiful areas. Be nice to see a couple pics!

Anyway, a little activity on TV section, maybe a bit of help to advertisers?

Catching trout ,or salmon with gear can be difficult to release , especially treble hooks ,or if they get hooked too far down in their mouth or throat. Any bleeding at all they are usually a goner . Over playing them is tough on them, if they end up on their side coming in ,they are overplayed . It's always good to bring them in as fast as possible especially if you release them . If you are releasing them, and worked them pretty hard after you unhook them, you should work them back, and forth in the water by the tail, or gently by the body until they can swim off on their own. More or less revive them .

It's rare with the fly fishing I do to hook them anywhere but in the lip or side of the mouth. I fish a lot where it's catch ,and release , and they need to be handled with care . The hooks are pretty small , very seldom anything bigger then size 12. If possible I don' handle them at all out of the water or even touch them , I can reach down ,and unhook them . If they are too big ,and squirrely I will net them .

With what little salmon fishing I do these days it's the land locked Kokanee we catch , and its with a friend out of his boat . We usually keep a limit for smoking or just cooking . They are hard to beat for eating . Very seldom do I keep a trout, we do occasionally in Montana out of a lake to smoke, but it's rare , more fun to release to catch another day . [emoticon]

I'll look thru the archives for some pictures , I don't take many. One trout looks the same as another [emoticon] I do have several of friends , I like to have those . When I first started fishing in Montana at this place we go every summer we met these guys, and their wife's that were retired , we were not . Now we are retired , and those guys no longer go up there. They are still ALL alive , except for a couple of the wife's [emoticon] , four in their 90's , and three more that are getting there . I keep in touch with most of them. One in particular I fished with a lot over the years , he quit coming this past summer , he is only 83 .

Yes there is worse places to be then Montana in the summer , and not much worse in the winter [emoticon] I was raised in northern Montana ,and it got a bit chilly there in the winter .

These fish are brought in quickly and many times the single barbless hook falls out. The fish are struggling and still very alive but for whatever reason some simply don't just swim off. I have heard this from many others.

I have no idea ,no experience like that with salmon why that would happen .They are a pretty hardy fish, they have to be to be able to make their spawning run .The few silver salmon I have caught in the ocean were kept ,but that was over 30 years ago. The salmon I have caught in Alaska have been on a river, and released with out problems .

I see trout that sometimes doesn't take much to get them on their side ,especially in the warm weather in the summer , but usually working them a little before letting them go, they will swim off pretty well. .
