World Record Fish Dies For Glory of Woman

World Record Fish Dies For Glory of Woman.

She didn't catch it and it died.

A great example of the kooky world of catch and release fishing.  Some would add the word sport before fishing but that would be too funny for this blog.  By the way, she was going to let it go after she could get it high enough our of the water,but, but, oh well.  What a noble and goal oriented activity.  Most fish do not die after being released, at least not right away that anybody is seeing, so say the catch and releasers.  But still, must release fish cause, cause, otherwise they might disappear faster than they already are.  And then what would we catch and release?

Check out the article on this momentous occasion.
  And take a look a the most popular comments.  Does anyone think of this kind of fishing as sport?  Seems most see it as a senseless waste for a fleeting ego tour, not eco tour.   The Huff Post put it under Weird.  Costa Rica toursim people take note.  Its time to release catch and release.  If the fish is in so endangered you feel you need to release it, target something else.  And bring it home for sushi.
