    Default Photos.

    Why do anglers who have obviously caught a big sometimes very big fish hold their catch with out stretched arms,
    Surely if they need the fish nearer the camera a step closer would easily do the job.
    Before the knives come out this is a serious question.
    When it seems everyone me included as the safety of their catch paramount holding fish at arms length is risking dropping the fish. I would be interested to know if there's a specific reason.
    Or is it just to make an obviously big fish appear bigger.

    I never hold my fish with outstretched arms. I prefer to stuff my jacket with bulky clothing making myself look bigger

    Yes, it's also easy enough to insert a familiar object into the photo to get a realistic sense of size.............................

    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Well . . . . . . Yes

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~
