During these times of hot weather fish will need more time to recover before being released. Please therefore try to observe the following:
1. Play fish to the net as quickly as possible.
2. Return fish as quickly as possible.
3. Support the fish in an upright position in the margins until it swims off freely and strongly.
4. Pour lake water over the fish whilst it is on the unhooking mat to keep gills and skin soaking wet.
5. Keep ground baiting to the minimum.
