Spring catch and release now law in Scotland

Posted · Add Comment

The Scottish Government has banned the killing of Salmon by rod and line and nets before April 1st. The law comes into force on Jan 9th 2015.
If a fish is killed accidentally it MUST BE RETURNED TO THE RIVER.
Many district boards are strongly recommending that this law should be extended to July 1st.
Ian Gordon has started a petition to try to encourage ministers to move the ban to July to try to protect the entire spring run.
If you wish to sign the petition, this is the link
