Default Catch and release

Do you find that more fly fishermen catch and release than do those who spin cast? I don't know if it's just my perception but I think that it's true.

Among my friends, we usually catch and release. I know that some fly fishermen can be downright snobby about this, but we just do it if we don't plan to eat our catch or if we're just interested testing our skills against the fish.

I neither notice it nor find any proof about it, but I can guess how you came to the assumption. The fly fishermen take more care about the art and fun of fishing than they do about the result (the amount of catches). You know, they tie flies (which is not an easy task), they learn different kind of casting, etc.

Based on my personal experience, I see it the other way around; we go spinning with a lot of families who do catch and release because they simply can't eat all of that fish in the time frame they want to eat it. When fly fishing, it's usually a smaller group of us, and we take most of our catch home.

I think there are preservationists regardless of whether the person is into fly fishing or spin casting. It really comes down to the individual and not a particular group of people.
