The more you handle a landed fish destined for release, the more you jeopardise its chances of a quick recovery and survival. The slime and scales of a fish are its protection from disease and parasites. When you handle a fish, this protection is reduced and the released fish stands a greater chance of succumbing to an untimely end.
The Rapala Floating Fish Gripper is a brilliant way to handle your catch and significantly reduce the impacts of handling. Thankfully, recent years has seen an astronomical rise in catch and release. The continuing education of anglers from all walks has ensured this sustainable approach to fishing has really taken on, and Australia at least can look forward to healthy fish stocks going forward.
With the Rapala Floating Fish Gripper you have the ability to handle your fish with one hand. Your catch is secured by the mouth and the quick release mechanism simply opens the jaws for a fast and injury free return to the water. Using the Gripper also protects the user from injury because of contact with fish teeth, gill rakers and sharp fins and spines. It’s a great tool for the kids to learn how to handle their catch efficiently, safely and with respect.
The real bonus is that when you drop them in the water, and it will happen, you will find them there floating on the surface for an easy retrieve. You have to love floating kit. There is a lanyard attached to the handle. If you use or connect this handle to your wrist correctly you are unlikely to see them hit the drink in the first place. The Rapala Floating Fish Gripper is for sale now and an awesome piece of fishing kit, a must for all anglers.
