Wet of the Week, it’s our Mouching way to give a hand to our buddies at Keep’em Wet. Fishporn it is, but of the wet kind: a thousand and one ways to shoot your catch without torturing it.

Our good friend, the indispensable Pierre Rigalleau, shows how it’s done in Quimper, French Britanny. There are still a couple of nice browns over there.


KEEP’EM WET — We were No-Kill for as long as we remember, then the digital revolution came along and suddenly we’ve seen fish everywhere, lipped, boga gripped, handled, squeezed, strangled, fingered in the gills etc. Tens of thousands of grip’n grins, show me that fish and your smile, and extend your arms as far as you can, it will look bigger… We did some too. And like for everyone else, sometimes we fumbled, and the fish took a hit for the cause. Then we read the casualty statistics. We thought about post-fight asphyxia…

And naturally we joined the ranks of Keep’Em Wet.
