As with all salmon pictures, this one has a story. This
is a happy fisherman and also was our cook at the lodge
in Chile. Cacho or Cachito as he likes to be called is
not a regular fishing person, but he has seen so many
happy fishermen and heard so many fish stories that he
thought of becoming a fisherman.
Nobody had brought a large salmon back to the lodge as all had been released or
the battle had been won over by the fish. Cachito knew that his cooking and warm
personality was truly making new international angling friends. All that he heard
at the dinner table was about the great fly fishing on the river and he thought;
Are these really true or just fish stories?
So one day after
three years of hearing how great it is to catch big salmon
he thought he would see for himself. That day, Cachito
became a salmon fisherman. We had a little problem convincing
him to become a catch and release angler. After holding
this beautiful creature in his hands and appreciating
the importance of preserving life, Cachito knew at that
moment he had the power of life or death. With respect
to this Atlantic salmon and maybe future ones, he chose
to release it. And to this day he talks about how he never
thought he would become a "catch and release"
