Brian Huskey formulated the concept and a website keeemwet.org. Great concept and a wonderful means by which we can preserve the wild fishery. But I asked Brian to give me actual descriptions of how catch and release fish should be handled. “The less a fish is exposed to air the better. As with just about everything in life, individual circumstances are going to dictate a lot and those circumstances can mean how warm the water is, how long the fish was fought, how the fish is held or gripped by a person, all of those variables are going to play into that outcome. In general, those are all things that are very important and that an angler needs to have an awareness of. If an angler understands that the water temperature and how they play the fish and how they unhook it and how they hold it, are all going to play into the outcome, they are better off. The angler’s better off. The fishery is better off. The next guy down the road that may catch that fish again sometime is better off.
