Fishing Guides: people you can rely on…
- Please be respectful of the environment.
- Retrieve and release the fish as soon as possible to avoid to over stress him.
- Unhook the fish with the utmost care, keeping him in the water (or the net) during this operation.
- If you cannot help taking a picture of your prey, avoid laying him on the ground or – even worse – on a heated stone (a picture of your smiling face with the fish still in the water says more words than holding him in your hands).
- When holding the fish, avoid squeezing him: he is live flesh, not plastic.
- When you fish a no-kill stretch, barbless hooks are compulsory: stick to this rule also on free waters.
- When on the river, stop once in a while and rest: admiring nature is often more relaxing than catching fish.
- Keep Wulff’s words in mind: “A fish is too valuable to be fished only once.”
