Catch and Release Badge Scheme 2009
The Ribble Catchment has one of, if not, the highest rates for catch and release of Atlantic Salmon in the UK. Recently other rivers have seen a slight drop in the numbers of fish returned to the water to continue on to spawn. To help reward and encourage our anglers on the Ribble Catchment we are introducing a Catch and Release Badge. These have been used to great effect in Scotland and we hope that the same will happen here.
How it works:
It is open to any angler who fishes the Ribble catchment, not just members of the trust.
You will first need to catch and then release a Salmon (no mean feet!).
Then send this back to us with £2.
In a change from the original plan we encourage you to send you form in straight away and we will then send out your badge immediately!
