I was thinking some of the same things the other day when looking at pictures and seeing how many people are fishing for salmon. How do the salmon get a chance to grow if there’s hundreds of people fishing for them almost every day at a lot of different river mouths? Some people don’t see the point in catch and release and it’s like me fishing for sting rays and seven gillers etc People ask what I do with them and I tell them I just take a picture and let them go and some people just laugh. Other people catch them and leave them to die or kill them and put them back so they wont be caught again. Catching big fish is all worth is for the fight, the screaming drag and just the challenge of landing them. I know salmon are a totally different thing but I’m sure fishing with super light gear you could get a challenging fight out of one.
