What to keep, what to throw back…

Down at the marina, this little boy was so proud of his big catch…a catfish that he held up with pliers. A few minutes later he felt another strong pull and thought he had gotten lucky again. But out of the water came an ugly thrashing stingray.  It shimmied and flopped on the concrete while the little boy examined it. Finally his dad stepped on the pointy tail and used the pliers to dig out the hook, which was in deep. He flung it back into the bay and got on with fishing.
