Ok, so you are on a popular stocked stream, in a surrounded hole fishing with 15 other guys. You latch into the hole "prize", an enormous Golden Trout. Are you mounting it ? Would it be a "meaningful" catch to you ? How about if you are all alone on a beautiful secluded stream fishing over Native Brook and Wild Browns. You battle a 23" Wild Brown into submission, or entice the most beautiful 13" Native Brook to take a Dry Fly. Do you consider mounting either ?
I know myself, I would consider getting a mount or replica of the Trout caught in the wilder setting. I know they are better served being gently handled and dropped back in the water, BUT, if I were looking for a Trout to stir a memory when I look at it adorning a wall on my man cave, I know it would be the variety born in the stream I caught it in.
There's no right or wrong answers. And I know some folks would be in a total twist for someone even thinking about mounting a Wild/Native, and that's ok too. But to me, those would be the memorable catches. Of course, I do not and would not advocate harvesting wild or native fish as table fare, though, I rarely fish over wild/native fish. It's just not a very opportune way of fishing in SW PA.
In thinking further, a well-positioned photo of the fish in the streamside setting, blown up and framed, would work even better for me. Though I completely stink at taking acceptable photos (it takes practice). Would be cheaper too.
