Do unto fish as you would have fish do unto you—Catch & Release

Cartoon of fly fisherman caught in net by trout. Caption of "Do unto fish as you would have fish do unto you—Catch and Release."

Yes, ideally fish wouldn’t want us to catch them in the first place… 

But hey, fly fishing is too much fun! 

I just liked the image of a fly fisherman being landed by a trout. Maybe the trout has a nice hot skillet somewhere behind. 

I had thought about putting a beer can with a hook, or a chocolate with a hook, or something in the fly fisherman’s mouth, but I thought it would be too complicated and distracting.

I do wonder what trout would choose as bait if they wanted to catch a fly fisherman?

If you have any ideas, email them to me. I’ll put them in a list below.

By the way, that big fishes name? It’s Colossus. Expect him to show up in future cartoons, too.
