They fake the footage of people picking them up by the tail. They use the same studio that they used to fake the moon landing. *nod*

There's got to be some technique that the rest of us are missing.

Actually when the fish has tired you can tail it pretty easy. In this case I would of walked it up the bank because the fish still had a lot of spunk in it, pretty much what happened. Got to be careful with the tip of the rod, keep it up when bending over to pick up the fish or tailing it. If the fish decides to make another run you might end up with two polls. NOT that I'm speaking from experience or anything like that...Very nice fish too and congrates.

I like how after your friend failed to tail it a few times that fish just beached itself. Nice looking fish by the way. I bet that thing cut great!

cotton is our friend. Prolly not the fishes slime, but neither is our sweat. Get the glove wet first, once you have a hold try not moving your hand up and down. Of course, if it`s a hatchery brat well............
