I usually adapt my c&r tactics to the stream conditions but as a rule of thumb i release most all my fish with no regret. however i did start guiding this past summer and to some degree i feel responsible for the dumb things clients will do, ie: not weting their hands, playfish until they are dead, keeping the fish out of the water for pics way to long, running a finger through the gill cover, throwing fish and the list go's on.what are these people thinking. Mostly its the new fisherman if you could call them fisherman at all. But before every outing i go through the routine of explaining ethics, tactics, responsibility and so on. Well anyway i'm going to go pull my hair out.
