More Than One Way to Hold a Fish!

Friday, weekend is here, time to lighten up.

Having said that, given people’s lack of humor, I am afraid I feel I must also post this disclaimer:  The following link and its subject are not meant as an endorsement of poor fish-handing techniques.  If you think I am being hypocritical, I have crawled up on the catch & release soapbox, and necessary best fish handling practices MANY times, Fish Handling, Good, Better, Best, You ARE Going to be Releasing Fish, Might as well Do It Right!, and others.

Having said that.  Follow this link and enjoy the review of

Unique Ways to Hold Walleye

Bet you have intentionally, or unintentionally, practiced several of those holds.

Hope you get a chance to get on the water and practice another one or two this weekend!
