Still trying to wrap my head around this one. There have been times when I have been a FISH KILLIN’, FISH FRYIN’, CATCH and RE-GREASE machine. No fish was safe. It was my personal mission to take my limit every time I was on the water.
Then I had that “Ah-Ha” moment. My mom said, “Mijo, it would be a lot cheaper to go to Albertsons and buy fish if that what it is all about”. Hmm…. Ok, Mom… Point Made.
I also believe that fishermen go thru stages; I want to catch a fish, I want to catch a few fish, I want to catch all the fish and then I just want to go fishing. BUT that is a different story.
Anyway… I have always had the utmost respect for fish and have always treated them as “nicely” as I could. I am sure if they could talk they would probably say something different, As I just jabbed a hook thru their mouth.
BUT there is a point where a fish is a fish… What do you think of the Photarium?
Basically, the idea is that you get your hero shot and the fish stays wet. Have we “Jumped the shark?”
I can see using this if you are cruising a river on a float trip, but I AM NOT packing one of these bad boys into the Wilderness. 🙂

Btw- if they want to send me one for free, I will send some sweet pics of Gila Trout in one… heheheh
