Trip Report With A Few Pictures 11/3/2016


Recommended Posts

It doesn't bother me a lick. I don't think it makes them look any bigger. 

That bottom pic I don't even consider long arming. But some do.

I like the long arm shots way better than not. Why? Simple. It makes a better picture. It makes the fish the focal point and just creates a much nicer image. If people feel intimidated by the long arm then maybe they need to change their pad. 

I've always felt the same way. Why make a good fish look bad by not getting the best possible picture of it. Hold it out, get a good angle and the best lighting possible so you can truly appreciate the fish afterwards. I am strictly catch and release so the photos of my big fish are like trophies. They help me re-live those great moments. That being said, I hate when people hold a fish out and then claim the fish is bigger than it actually was. As long as you are honest about the size of the fish, make it look as good as possible even if that means you have to long arm it a little

I don't know how anyone can say the first pic doesn't look better than the second pic...
