It isn't pretty but it's the first one I've ever caught. It's back in the water so it can make more for next time. The fishing was painfully slow otherwise all day. My friend and I fished various places in the upper river over the course of the day and this was the only hookup the whole time.

Congratulations man :beerchug: Very nice fish. It is not that bad actually.

Just next time, if you are going to release, keep it closer to the water and don't lift front of the fish that high. Cheers, congratulations again :thumbup:

The guys on his knees, lifting the fish barely 2 feet of the water, for no more then 5 seconds. No wrong doing here.

The fish are starting to get sunburnt with the low water. How many guys where out? What time of day did you hit the spring?

That's funny. I've always wondered what I'd do wrong when I finally posted my first picture with a report. Turns out I held the fish six inches too high and 9 degrees off the correct angle. That's REALLY reaching for something to point out. Oh well, thanks for the support from everyone else.

Nice fish Roughing minor, and I would hardly worry about a comment from a guy who has been witnessed snagging sockeye and Chinook for the last week :wallbash:.
I did not witnessed any snagging. What made you say so?

There is nothing wrong with me providing my own opinion. http://www.bcadventure.com/adventure/angling/protalk/thornton/catchrelease.phtml Here is the nice article on catch and release with some pics. I just provided my suggestion to the guy who made a picture for his first spring. There is nothing wrong with what he has done, but I believe next time he will take this into consideration :beerchug:

Next time I'll be sure to bring my level out on the river so I can get that angle right. ::)
:) ... and then, just before releasing, please talk to the fish, have a nice dialogue and try to figure out if he is ok. if you realized that he is too stressed, please take the fish to a psychologist, the last thing we want is to have fishes with post-traumatic stress disorder. ;D

That fish will make you so addicted to this sport!! Nice job Roughingminor! :beerchug:
