Again I will say it, you cannot say that anyone who bait fishes has no fish handling skills and don't care about the fish, total fly fishing snobbery!
What about the fly fishermen (some top competition guys) that rip flies out and throw the fish back, deep hook fish using boobies and either cut the line and throw back or rip the fly out and throw back, what about the ones who catch a 2lb fish then catch a 3lb fish so throw the 2lb fish back in ? What about the guys that catch their limit, get weighed in for those precious points then throw the fish in the bin ?
Are these morons any better than the bait guys ?? Of course they are because they are fly fishermen
And if anyone comes on here and says it doesn't happen you must fish blindfolded, take a walk round any fishery after a competition!
It's not the method, its the person! And these competition fishers, competition organisers and fishery owners need to take a long hard look at themselves.
Fly fishing snobbery! Disgusting
