    your wife was holding the rod, your wife landed the fish, YOUR WIFE CAUGHT IT !!
    Personally I'd be happy for my wife if it was me.........

    That all depends on how long you want to be married

    Its the details, those little details, that make the difference.

    It's the angler who lands the fish, not the rod and reel.. Therefore your wife caught it and can claim it as her catch, after all, you didn't catch it.

    Bollocks. My Boat, My Fish!

    No, in reality, it's the Angler. Anyone can put the bait down there, but it takes skill to get the fish up. By doing nothing, you did just that! It's her fish, through and through.

    Now go tell your wife she is classed as bait..... this is why i figure you are married so you caught her, than used her to catch your trout therfore she is only bait......

    Let me know how this works for you.........

    My wife caught the only fish tonight... I baited it, cast it and hooked it but she did the reeling in and landing.. Therefore, her fish.

    Easy, If the wife is involved it is always her fish.

    Any other time:

    My rod, you reel it in - my fish
    Your rod, I reel it in - my fish

    If you argue the point too much she may never touch your rod again and you wont get any fish at all

    you know i'm right

    i'd explain to her that for it truly to be "her" fish, she'd also have to clean it, cook it, wash the dishes and muck out the boat...
