    A couple of Danish fish Hi all Had a great trip to one of the few Danish rivers with salmon in it, 4 fish over the weekend up to 31 inches, guess that would be 11 lbs or so (purely C&R, weighing is generally considered a no-go). All on homemade Flying C's. Photos taken with one hand, and a...

    Hello, I would be grateful if any members could point me in the direction of any studies of C&R of Atlantic salmon which have shown it’s effect on population levels within a catchment. Ideally the studies would deal with C&R in isolation in order to discount the effects of other management tools...

    The thread on the new regulations for 2019 New fishing regulations 2019 ireland shows that we are going to be allowed to use barbless doubles on most C&R rivers next year.

    I dont want this to turn into another C&R debate, Im all for C&R but volentary, I return 99% of all my catch. I'd like to retain a two fish bylaw limit (as is already in force under my local rivers NLO) I use as 'insurance' for a deep hooked fish. Ive killed one in the last 5 years returning...

    Hi all, I am still looking for a freezer bag to transport frozen fish. Used to buy it from Fawcetts or Sportfish but they don't offer it any more. It seems there is no need for it in the days of C&R. Maybe someone has left one over. Icelander05

    Tackle manufacturer getting involved in the sea bass C&R issue...do game fishing tackle suppliers do enough? Surely any sectors of the tackle trade which profit from the bass fishing market should properly get behind the conservation efforts - with big credit to Sidewinder Lures

    Isn't it interesting how since c&r became fashionable, the average size of salmon caught seems to have increased! Also, no one ever catches a nineteen pounder any more, they seem to make the jump from eighteen pound, to "around twenty pound", or "just over twenty", without getting caught! Just a...

    All this talk of C&R I thought it might be useful to post some examples of practice. I fish C&R rivers almost all the time so have a fair bit of experience of doing it these days. You'd think I'd go the hang of it by now. This first film demonstrates there can be a tendency to be too concerned...
