People: Richard Formato to appear on Outdoor Channel

Virginia angling legend, Richard Formato, recently took part in the filming of an episode of the Outdoor Channel's fly fishing show "Familier Waters." Dan Kegley of writes about the filming of "Fishing with the Ghosts of the Civil War."
Formato said Monday the episode will air this weekend. The Outdoor Channel’s Web site said air times are 1:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 9 p.m. Saturday.
(Editor's Note - Richard sent us the photo above of himself posing with this beautifully colored brown trout. He accompanied it with a story, but we were sworn to secrecy even though he never really mentioned where he caught it.)

Yea, it's a good fish, but why oh why do anglers persist with the age old photo cheat of holding the fish at arm's length to the camera. In this case full arm's length. His hands are bigger than his entire chest.
It just detracts from what could have been a nice shot. Now it just looks silly.

I have to agree with you. That fish stands on its own just fine. It doesn't need any help.
