Some interesting science from the folks at Keep ‘Em Wet.

If, like most fly anglers, you’re interested in catch-and-release fishing this study offers some new tools for assuring the survival of the fish you release. The flow chart outlines four simple tests any angler can perform that will tell you if your catch is ready to swim away.

Using these simple tools could tell you a lot about the effectiveness of your C&R practices. I’ll be trying this out next time I’m on the river and I encourage you to as well.

  1. This is well done. Now, how about some good information on how to handle fish when you ‘retain’ them during recovery?
