Ok I may pee off someone but Im just glad people are letting them go....I agree wetting hands is a good idea but my gosh be happy they are releasing them in the first place... I allways wet my hands but I am guilty of laying fish down to take pics but 9 times out of 10 it is on a wet bank or wet grass....

As long as you wet your hands and make sure the fish can swim away after you snap a quick shot I don't think there's much harm done.

Best way not to leave marks from handling them with dry hands is to just put your foot on their head and jerk the fly out. Never have to take them out of the water and you can just give them a little "kick start" to revive them and send them on their way

When I realized that dry hands took the slime off of fish, I started writing messages to other fisherman before I put them back, "I like caddis", "I'm Nemo", etc. Sometimes I would write numbers on them and then set up little races in the shallows. In the end, I think the performance enhancing drugs I injected them with were more detrimental to their health than messages written in their slime.

Does this mean we should stop the ceremonial "kissing of the fish" as well? Does Chapstick with SPF30 offer anymore protection to the fish slime vs SPF15?

Personally if you can't land a trout that is say under 16" in less than a minute or two you should be ashamed of your angling skills and take some lessons from a guide. Constant pressure and getting the fish's head up is the key. It's the overplay IMO that kills these fish more than say a quick photo, especially if that fish is kept in the net in the water until your set up to take the photo.
