When ‘Grip N’ Grins’ Go Wrong [PICS]

Twitter/Lords of the Fly

You have one chance at the hero shot of your trophy. Here’s what happens when ‘grip n’ grins’ go wrong.

We have all done it. Some of us just keep these photos private so they don’t become stuff of legend after several drinks have been served at the fishing cabin on vacation.

Grip n’ grins are as much as a part of fishing as fishing is a part of us. The only problem is sometimes these photos just don’t work out the way they are supposed to.

This probably would have been a good picture but…

 Maybe this trout just wanted a better look?

He may be overthinking this.

Who says a pocket isn’t a good place to keep a fish?

Apparently trout aren’t good at the “handoff.”

It takes a lot of concentration to make a pike levitate.

He looks so sad! I hope things got better after this photo!

I’m surprised too! I didn’t think fish that small could fly either.

She looks less than enthused.

Well, after all that, I hope we feel a little better about the good grip n’ grins that the fishing gods have granted us. Here’s to a great 2015, and may all your future grip n’ grins be great.

(That should be a toast or something.)
