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.

Me either BRF. I would hardly put it with trot lines or jugs. I have foul hooked Bream and Bass and not even known it till I got them boatside.
BTW, Nice fish TJW, looks like another good day!

Thank you guys. I don't mean to offend anyone, but sometimes people get way too serious about posts on here. AKSkim, I believe pineman said smartass because he read in to my post and knew I was being a smartass about tailhooking them. Yes, it was a good fight, but I knew only when I had it in 2 ft of the net that it was tailhooked so I decided to get the size 14 hook out of it, set the camera to take a lot of quick pics ao I could pic out the one where the fish is still, and have it untailhooked, photographed, and back in the water in about 30 seconds. I am not trying to be a jerk, and I hope I did not take your post wrong. Just want anyone who might read future posts to know that if I say anything like that that I constantly joke about stuff, especially when I foul up, and I am not unethical(at least not when it comes to fishing). Speaking of fishing...........I am getting off here and going to Elkmont to see what the wild fish are liking today. Hopefully they are biting so I don't have to tail hook them(joking).
