Catch & Release

Science shows that even small changes in how an angler catches, handles, and releases a fish can have positive outcomes once that fish swims away.

Not only does using best practices increase survival rates of fish, but it also helps fish return to their normal behaviour as quickly as possible after release. Using best practices for catch and release is a quick and effective way to put conservation in to practice. 

View the Catch & Release page on our web site that contains guidance from the Wild Trout Trust and also Keep Fish Wet, an organisation that promotes the use of science-based best practices to catch, handle, and release fish.

WTT have produced a double sided card with trout length/weight guides and rules for good catch and release practice (as put on our website). See attachments to Chris' email of today. It might be an idea to produce credit card sized laminated cards for all our members especially new members. What do you think?
