Here’s a few simple tips on how to best hold a fish and get a great photograph, without harming the fish.
There’s a lot of debate right now about photographing fish. Like most topics that get blown out of proportion on the internet, this debate is riddled with sensationalized accusations and disinformation. I’ve written about holding fish for photographs but I thought a short video showing how simple and noninvasive it can be would be a big help.
First, I’d like to clarify my stance on the subject. When done properly, I do not see any harm in photographing a fish. Fish are injured by poor handling, not cameras. I have two serious problems with the ‘no photo’ argument. First, it simply doesn’t address the problem. If anglers are mishandling fish, they are doing so while landing them and unhooking them with or without a photo. Demonizing the camera does nothing to stop this and doesn’t save fish. What we should be doing is educating anglers on ethical fish handling. Secondly, the photograph is the bargain that makes catch-and-release fishing work. Whether you like it or not there are simply a lot of anglers who require proof of their catch. It’s much better to give them a photo than a corpse.

The danger of using tailing gloves on Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trout.
The tailing glove/white glove/fish slime glove has become popular from TV shows in the last 10 years or more.
When asking people why they use a tailing glove the response is almost always “it makes it easier to handle a fish!” Of course they are right, but the cost of using one is the loss of the protective slime coat of the fish…The ole “slimy fish glove handshake” comes out and everyone figures the fish is fine.
The fish is NOT fine, you have just removed it’s only protection from pathogens and diseases found in the water. Most commonly for Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trout is saprolegnia (fungus) that will grow on the open wound and eventually take over and kill the fish or make an easy meal for predators.
The video below is proof of what happens and hopefully anyone that uses or has used gloves in the past will never use them again in the future!
