For photography of fish captures, always kneel to hold the fish which should done only over the carp cot - never stand up holding the fish. If the fish flaps whilst holding it, simply bring the fish into your body then place back on the cot, wet the fish up from the bucket provided, and start again. All fish should be returned to the lake using the sling provided. Our fish are now of considerable size and we want them to increase even more, so following these steps will avoid any fatalities on the bank.
The rules are standard rules and are for the the wellbeing of the fish and to ensure first class fishing for everyone.
