Responsibility On Fishingposted on 30 July 2007 | posted in Hints and Tips
Some people would like to see fishing banned as a cruel sport, so every angler has a responsibility to the fish, and the environment. Use barbless hooks, treat the fish with respect and handle them with care so as not to injure them. Always return a fish carefully to the water immediately after removing the hook, so that it does not become too distressed. Do not leave any litter, discarded line, hooks, or split shot behind when you leave the water. This is not only dangerous for the local wildlife, but could be used as an argument against anglers. Remember! you are being allowed to fish on someone else's property, so don't abuse the privilege.
If this has whetted your appetite, then give it a try.
