Care for your catch

As the importance of conserving our stocks of migratory fish like salmon and sea trout grows, Inverness Angling Club is asking all members and visitors to its water to handle fish with the greatest of care.

The club understands the enthusiasm of anglers to take pictures of their catch, but they should take the greatest care of the fish in doing so. Fish should be kept in the water, preferably in a net and not lying on gravel, while hooks are carefully released.

That’s when the snap can be taken by a fellow angler or by the successful fisher. All fish to be released should be treated this way, giving salmon and sea trout — fresh and kelts — the best chance to run the river, spawn and return to the sea, perhaps to make further spawning runs.
