I don't quite understand that.....the video initially put up by Tigger is identified as "Part 1", and once it finishes, amongst other videos, there is a link to a "Part 2", which shows a load of tench being released back into a lake....and from what I saw, it looked like they all swim off.

 

It has the same date, the same "angler", and what looks like the same herd of cows? If correct, then that is one hardy catch of tench....they get hauled out of the water, dragged over stones in the keepnet, unceremoniously dumped onto some grass and left for a while, before being chucked back in the keepnet, dragged over the stones back to the lake...and released?

 

Or was there a second keepnet?

I'm sure it was the same net full of fish Paul. I've seen it back in the 'bad' old days, with over 100lb of bream, or chub in a keepnet. They too were laid out to be photographed, and they all swam away. Tench are pretty hardy fish, although I did see a couple of bream in there. Although to us it seems very wrong, I don't think we should be too quick to judge. The old, glass houses and stones saying often applies.

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

Rough handling it may have been, but I'd still bet that was a walk in the park for them compared with the life many UK fish have on our heavily stocked and fished waters.

I've no problem with the fish being on the grass but there was no reason to leave them out of the water for such a long time and to go videoing their fishing gear with the fish still flopping about on the bank was pretty ignorant imo. I reckon if they where seen treating fish like that on any heavily fished commercial they'd get their marching orders pretty sharp'ish.
