Eight thousand miles is a long way to go to catch a trout. But there I was, balancing precariously in a boat on a river in Chile, having my first lesson in fly-fishing.
To be fair, I’d never really put too much thought into catch and release. It’s something that I’ve been taught to do, just another aspect of the sport that I love. With rare exception, I’ve always assumed that my released fish live on to fight another day and I sleep easy knowing that I’m doing my part for the conservation of the species.
As most of us came to fly fishing from the world of spinning rods it is only natural that many of the things we learned there should be at least tried, hooking fish is one of them.
