catch and release trout best practice Here

So long as we all fish within the regulations, whether we are catch-and-release anglers or catch-and-keep anglers, that's just fine. But I hope more of us start thinking more in terms of quality than quantity. Maybe catching 10 trout on dry flies is better than pounding 50 fish in a day by running a synthetic worm and egg with a nymph rig beneath a strike indicator.

FISH: an animal that grows the fastest

between the time it’s caught
and the time the fisherman
describes it to his friends.


I have visited this web site on a couple of occasions and I am always impressed with the depth of knowledge and information .The information is always good and up to date with a bit of humour thrown in, keep up the good work.
