Default Does it count if I tail-hook em?

Hit Raven Fork today. I caught 6 fish in all. Here are pictures of 4 of them. I will never admit to it again, but the 17 and 19 inch ones were both tail-hooked, but it was a **** good hookset.

20in.


16in.


17in.


19in.

You foul hook any fish, if you can't bring it in directly you BREAK OFF.

Catching one by the tail I bet he was fought for a good while.. screaming reels.. oh yeah.. lot of fun there sonny.

I just wonder how he got them to lay so still on those rocks while he got his camera out and took his photographs?

Smart *** pineman? No I am an ethical fly fisherman.

Snaggers can be proud of their hook-set, should have been more proud of their release.

I've never noticed a difference in time in reeling a fish in between foul hooking and a correct hook set. Maybe it's because I rarely catch a larger fish.
