What David says is exactly right. Anglers need to learn how to play a fish correctly. Some people just like to hear their drag squeal and set it as low as possible. I had a similar experience to David expecting to see the man land a pig, but he scooped up a 12" rainbow. That is poor judgement on the part of the angler, and I believe it doesn't matter how he handled the fish as it probably did not survive the battle...
