Encouraging the use of unhooking mats.

The club is very keen to maintain the quality of fish in our waters and is asking all members to take great care whilst unhooking fish.

In particular the club is discouraging the unhooking of fish directly on staging or on bare ground as this can lead to serious damage to the fish.

To avoid this the club is encouraging every member to carry, and use, an unhooking mat. They are not particularly expensive and can go a long way towards prevention of fish damage.

The committee is considering making this a compulsory item of equipment for all anglers fishing club waters.
