Data suggests you're not killing that trout by holding it up for a hero shot.

I would guess it's more in how clumsily the fish is handled while the photo is taken.

#keepemwet is just some bullshit the instabray's came up with to get to sleep at night. If you want to make sure the fish lives, break your hook points off.

So, I went to #keepemwet's website to find some "scientific" evidence from the other side just to be contrary/snarky.

Instead, I found something way better. I found that the best thing about tenkara is that you can fish and hold your coffee at the same time.

not Taking a fishing out of the water is just a good guide for people who have no common sense. For that purpose it’s fine. I just hate the people who get all uppity about it. If you’re truly that concerned with the fish’s survival, don’t hook it in the first place. Like my 6th grade health teacher said, the only safe sex is butt sex. Or some shit.

Interesting! I think our local Catholic priest said the same thing!
