And they left that fish alone. If you are going to jab hooks in the mouth of a fish, transport him in water all the way back home, just to let him asphyxiate on dry land by himself, then you suck, but at the very least, you damn well better be there for his final moments. Also, I do not like you very much. I mean, all the other stuff is awful - the hook, the pain, the transportation.
But there is something achingly painful about leaving a fish to die alone on asphalt. It made my heart sad.
