Inland Fisheries Ireland & Leave No Trace Ireland team up to launch new angling checklist
Inland Fisheries Ireland is teaming up with Leave No Trace Ireland to launch a new checklist, highlighting the ten things that every angler should consider when planning a fishing trip.
According to a recent survey, around 327,000 people in Ireland love to fish; anglers are our important stewards over lakes, rivers and coastlines, helping to safeguard our precious fisheries resource for future generations to enjoy.
The key message from Leave No Trace Ireland and Inland Fisheries Ireland this year is “The Outdoors Is Yours – Protect It.”
The new checklist includes advice for both novice and advanced anglers, such as don’t forget to wear a personal floatation device, move carefully around sensitive habitats to avoid disturbing wildlife and clean equipment and clothing after a trip to stop the spread of invasive species.
