Well. If one decides to hold a fish out of water for hero shots like that, then I'm rooting for the grizzly!

Oh I don't know, I bet the Grizz doesn't practice catch & release.........

Possibly the ultimate photo-bomb though.

What is a G&G?

Looks like we're in for another fish out of the water thread.

Let the chest-pounding begin! I've got my popcorn in the microwave and my grammar-glasses on!

This "Grip-n-Grin" is OK; the fish is NOT looking downwards - ie, already beyond returning to water anyway, and on the gill-plate there is a big 'M' brand mark of the MacDonalds chain of 'sustainable' foods (sustaining the general obesity & ill-health of the population.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.

suspect photoshop

the lighting on the rear bank indicates sun on the left and on the right for the bear.

then note the hand to body relationship would indicate the lens used is a moderate wide angle, and the bear has a flatness too it, indicating a telephoto. add this to the layering haze around the bear, I just dismiss the picture.

no longer take hero shots, but appreciate the odd fish done in a smoker.

Speyducer: I recently learned on another site that salmonid eye orientation is influenced by the angle the fish is being held. To be a little clearer, when the fish is held left-side lower, the right eye points down. Much the same way a horse holds its head vertically neutral while leaning into a sharp turn. This came from an opthamological (sp?) surgeon known as eyedoc on the forum.

Obviously, when the hatchery fish is bonked (a very technical term), eye orientation becomes fixed.

Thanks for the G & G explanation!

Fun w Photoshop

Fun, but not buying any part of the picture. There is just too much wrong. Graphic details aside, if you have ever been close to a large brown bear can you imagine someone capable of standing still and smiling when it splashes through the water at such close range? Can you imagine the cajones of the cameraman?

in all seriousness, there is not a single drop of water dripping off that fish, it has obviously been out of water way longer than necessary. on the upside, hopefully the bear ate the angler too, so we have one less idiot crying that cnr mortality doesn't matter.
