    Well done. Easy and clear. For me the best way to take a photo with a fish, is holding it into the water, better if inside a rubber net.

  6. Carl Moeller on December 13, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    U have the best fly fishing vids out there. Best way to Catch and Release is debarb the hook first. If you land it in the net, keep the net in the water,with the fish inside. Best scenario is that once there is slack in the line the hook will pop out. Then turn ur net over after you make sure that the fish is ready to swim off. If the hook does not come out, wet your hands and try to remove the hook without touching the fish. If you can’t do that then keep the fish wet while holding it gently and remove the hook. Want a pic? Take it with the fish in the net. Want to hold the fish? As Ben said make sure everything is ready and then take the quik pic. When we fish we count ‘quik releases’ if we see the fish and can identify it…rainbow, brookie, etc. Tight lines!

    The intro threw me off

  8. Austin Elliott on December 13, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Gaze at the fish you flossed off a redd. I’m gonna wear my waders in the hot tub.

  9. James Ward on December 13, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Yeah and what’s the deal with smiling in photos?! Lolol I mean, who just smiles for no reason?!?!? They just do it cuz everyone else is doing it!!! Fucking dumb asses!!!

  10. Philip Aaberg on December 13, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Seriously, LEAVE THE FISH IN THE WATER! You don’t need no stinkin’ picture. You’re killing them at a high rate if you keep them out longer than a few seconds. Guides have a big responsibility to teach the new etiquette. Seriously, thanks for the last comments!

  11. Classy on December 13, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    You’re hilarious !! Thanks for sharing !!

  12. Daddy McSnacks on December 13, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Why does your dog have disdain for you?

  14. Italian Troutaholic on December 13, 2020 at 10:16 pm

  16. Dylan Dehning on December 13, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    doesn’t the hot tub destroy those waders?

  17. Skiff Outfitters on December 13, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Gill snatching is out of style??

  18. Jolynne Howard on December 13, 2020 at 10:18 pm

  24. fishnstu on December 13, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Nice! Someone who actually knows what a fishy peduncle is and how to use it in a sentence.

  25. adam long on December 13, 2020 at 10:28 pm

  29. Farmer Bob on December 13, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    And most important- don’t have a Marlboro hanging out of your mouth.

  30. Preston Ward on December 13, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Oh my God! My eye! My eyes! Excuse me while I GO BARF! ……… LMBO. Love the humor! Hey can you cook and clean? You might make a good wife? Bahahahahaha

  33. Kurt W on December 13, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    I fully expect to see a 1 hour version of these videos at the F3t 2019. Also, please tell me that is a Corgi-German Shepard-Shiba Inu mix

  35. TRONOFTHEDEAD on December 13, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    I would love for someone to do "The Simba" with a fish.

  36. 2nd Chance George on December 13, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Love the suit…lol.👍😁

  37. Kevin Hall on December 13, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    No huge "kissing the fish" pictures???

  38. david Arnold on December 13, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    just pressed like. cool mil coming your way. You don’t have to say anything. I think the word "hero" gets thrown around to quickly. But I think, under this circumstance, it’s perfectly acceptable to call me a hero.. I’m just saying….

  39. Peter Ballin on December 13, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Too funny…and good lessons as well

  41. Josh Reed on December 13, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    Ok ok good vid this time. I admit I laughed with the butt hooks and cork sucking. Bikini top, well says a lot about you. Info was excellent. Since I’m a troll I’ll give this one 4 stars.

  42. Chris Van Donsel on December 13, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    And if you eat them dispatch before your pics !

  43. Clint Crabb on December 13, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Honestly, your hatless head was more shocking to me than the bikini top…

  44. Fauster IV on December 13, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    You forgot the vidal organ pincher. As seen on the cover of every flyfish mag and the gram

  45. Jason Potter on December 13, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    This is fucking awesome!

  46. Rick Marshall on December 13, 2020 at 11:00 pm

  47. Barry Marshall on December 13, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Hey Ben. 😁 thanks for another great video. Here’s a like 👍🏽 and another million dollars 💵 Stay HUGE!!!

  48. Jonathan Bergh on December 13, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    "cork-sucking" & "thanks for the trust fund dad!"
    I learn so much from your videos

  49. micahisaac on December 13, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Don’t forget to hyper-boost the color before you post your fish pics! Unnatural colors are the BOMBDOTCOM!
