A net also gives a real clue to the size of the fish ,none of that naughty holding the fish forward making it look bigger ,in reality if its for fish welfare do you HAVE to have the text book trophy shot of you holding it or do people hang around taking shots of other peoples fish so they can say they caught it?

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you


There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong


Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle


Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste

OK, if the fishery/ club wants a pink duvet and a bunk bed for the fish I suggest they ought to provide em otherwise we will be transferring tons of foreign mussels about the place.  Would a separate caravan for the fish to recover in be a possible compromise?


I haven't seen a suitable sized cradle for my whip fishing. I am hoping that this will be a pocket sized one.


How long a snooze do the fish need before I put em back in the pond? Am I allowed to just tip em all in (whoosh) or is there an agreed procedure to release them (twice tickled under the chin and a friendly chat before submerging them in a camou bag and opening the vents )?
