Fish Welfare

Message from H&D.A.A. chairman: WIth continuing warm weather and low river conditions we urge all our members to take great care whilst handling and returning fish. We would prefer keep nets were not used and plenty of time taken to allow fish to fully recover before release, in particular the barbel that can take some time to fully recover. We understand you love your sport and want to participate as often as possible but the committee would like you to consider not fishing whilst this hot weather continues. The reason for this is solely for the benefit and health of our fish, many clubs throughout the UK (including the Wye & Usk Foundation) have now stopped all fishing on their waters. We do not, at this time want to stop all fishing but just rely on our members and guests to have a little common sense and think highly of the fish welfare. THANK YOU.
