Atlantic Women on the Fly

Join in & learn at our “Keep Fish Wet” Seminar. Andrew will walk you through the best science-based practices for catch & release purposes. Keep Fish Wet promotes the use of science-based best practices to catch, handle, and release fish. Science shows that even small changes in how an angler catches, handles, and releases a fish can have positive outcomes once that fish swims away. Not only does using best practices increase survival rates of fish, but it also helps fish return to their normal behavior as quickly as possible after release. Using best practices for catch-and-release is a quick and effective way to put conservation into practice. Adopting science-based best practices is a personal evolution and work in progress for all of us – especially as science continues to advance as well.
