A carp angler's dream is to catch big, immaculate looking carp.
To produce this calibre of fish, we ask you to read and observe these basic fish handling rules. The observance of these rules will help keep our fish in the mint condition that you deserve.

Before lifting the fish into the cradle, have a bucket ready full of fresh water to wet the cradle, iodine to treat the fish, weighing scales and camera ready

Slide the weigh sling under the collapsed landing net and lift the fish from the water using the sling.

Return all fish ASAP and in warm weather be extra careful.

Only move fish from the cradle to the water in the weigh-sling
