Be kind, use a net.
Sadly no fishing tonight. Home late from work, then cook tea for kids and some other stuff to do. Long story short no time for fishing. Anyway last nights catch brought about a change in my setup, first thing this morning I was off to Country Life for a Fox Match Fish Safe Drip Dry Spoon landing net. I fish light tackle as I enjoy catching fish. Most of my canal catches are small fish, I use light No.4 Preston Elastic which is fine for lifting most straight from the water without harming the fish. Unexpectedly though I seem to be getting my fare share of better fish and feel trying to lift them is more likely to harm them, hence I am now armed with a suitable method of landing my catch without damage. I feel this is important as it satisfies my conscience and ensures my future sport.
