Steve posts a nice article on respecting trout.
My friends and I are very lucky in that we have a mass of cheap affordable wild trout fishing on our doorstep. Saying that, we are not averse to occasionally visiting a stocked fishery for a spot of rainbow trout fishing. We are guilty of taking great delight in sometimes referring to fish as “slabs of lard” or the fact we are going “stockie bashing”. This is not poking fun at the type of fish but more at the attitudes that are perpetuated by the angling press and by some anglers who insist on “bagging up” at all costs.
When it comes to fishing I think that whatever you do you have got to enjoy it.
