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.
This week’s wet comes from our friend Zarn, superb photographer of fly fishing and dream rivers. Go check his webite, you’ll find a whole treasure of landscapes, cane rods, southern hemisphere and crazy lights… Don’t miss the carp section, with it’s awesome close-ups. Enough Wets to put here for months!! And ideas by the dozen to shoot your catch in something else than a grip’n grin. This one is maybe the one I prefer: the very essence of what’s moving about the way we fish.
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.
