handle with care

I do love to fish.  I'll spend the entire day with my boots in the water with nothing more than a granola bar and  a pocket full of sunflower seeds.  I use artificial lures.  I practice catch and release of the fish.  Careful removal of the hook in each one followed by soft handling in the water.  They swim off knowingly...  not bested, not a loss.  It's not a competition, more like a respective dance.
And we live on to fish another day.
