How do you guys take your pics when by yourself and practicing C&R. I am tired of my left hand showing up in every pic. Should I use a net. I know it's a stupid question but...

If you look at my reports, I take the pics of the fish in the net, helps that I have one of those measure nets so you can tell about how big the fish is.

Hook 'em, net 'em, unhook 'em, snap a picture of 'em, revive 'em, do it again.

No need for a photo if your by yourself unless maybe it's the largest you have caught of that species or something like that, But I would say the net is the best way to go. It really bugs me when I see photos of fish laying on the ground. I think that if you can't get a photo without harming the fish then don't do it. Ohterwise if their dinner, drag them through the dirt on the way back to the car.

I was guilty of doing the on-the-ground, but discontinued it. If I do it now, I don't even use my camera. I just pull out my cell phone and click. Takes about 2 seconds. Most of the time, I don't even bother. Better to have a friend for sure

A scaleless fish like a trout I'd say keep it off the ground for sure. As for scaled fish like a bass, I think the fish has more to worry about from your thumb that's in its mouth than it does from dirt or sand. I'm not recommending rolling it in the dirt like you were breading a fillet but the acids from your skin are far worse than the dirt IMO.
