There are all kinds of fishermen (and women) out there and many think of fishing as following around the stocking truck and dipping powerbait laden hooks to gut hook their fish. To a lot of people this is what fishing is all about--after all you need to bring home some fish to prove yourself. Others choose to wave a stick and try to lip hook a trout by inticing it to take a fake bug. These people are more prone to practice catch and release methods. Stocked fish serve a purpose to all kinds of fishermen and without it many would have no good fishing experiences. Personally, a secluded, peaceful native trout stream where I can catch and release (or at least try) is my cup of tea.
