Catch and release

Catch and Release has been common practice on the Dee for many years and our anglers have a good track record for safely releasing fish. It is important that every fish returned alive to the river is given the best possible chance to survive until spawning time.

The Atlantic Salmon Trust has produced an excellent guide to good catch and releases practice, including a film which shows how it is done.
