According to Roy Hitchings, former head of Pen Bay Hospital and a member of Georges River Trout Unlimited, “It seems like it is human nature to kill the fish that we catch. Yet, as Jacques-Yves Cousteau said, “People protect what they love.”

I love to fish, catch fish (especially large ones) and eat fish, and yet I release about 95 percent of the fish I land.

Why? The sport for me is hunting the fish on a river, stream or pond, figuring out what fly it will eat, fighting it and then releasing it. I figure if most of us do that, we will all have more and larger fish to try to fool into taking our fly, whether it’s trout, salmon, bass or stripers.
