Fish handling

Fri, 2007-08-17 15:55

I got the Email and just want to note some of them have pretty poor fish handling in them , hands in gills and only holding it up by the mouth , fair few kilo's of fish hanging by it's jaw.

Yes it shows the fish swimming off but who's to say if it lived or not , B I G fish like that should stay in the water JMHO .

Pretty valid point that Mav. Suppose you gotta hope that it was handled with care.

How bout the sambos you get Mav - when people want photos of the big ones of those what are the protocols of handling them?
