Explain "touch"


I have never been big game fishing, so take this with more salt than you'd use on the rim of a margarita glass . . . .


I have heard two different versions. One is that in the old days, a fish was only counted once it had been gaffed and brought aboard the boat. Now, with most game fish released, they are considered "caught" when someone one the boat has the leader in hand the way they would have if they were trying to gaff the fish.

The other is that a fish is caught once the leader butt is inside the tip top of the rod.
