Re: Photographing fish
If you are going to photograph a fish, PLEASE have the camera somewhere ready to go QUICKLY! When I take pictures, I have the camera where I can grab it as soon as the fish is almost to hand. If the fish will accept being held long enough for a picture before it is exhausted, great! Otherwise it should be released. I agree with the previous posts as well, don't put the fish lying on its side on dry land. If there are weedbeds in the water that are thick enough to support the fish and keep it in the water, use those or else lift it gently high enough to get a picture and then release it. A picture is NOT worth the life of the fish in my opinion at least!
