CATCH AND RELEASE BUTTON

Catch and Release has been used for many years by anglers throughout the world in an effort to conserve fish stocks. Scientists now agree, generally, that the survival rate of released fish is sufficiently high enough to show a beneficial effect upon fish populations. The Tyee Club offers, for sale, a catch and release button to those anglers who choose to release, rather than take a salmon, providing the following conditions are met:

a) the angler must already be a member of the Tyee Club

b)
the fish must have been caught and released while fishing in accordance   with the rules and regulations of the Tyee Club

c)
the fish must be released in good condition

d)
both the angler and the guide must estimate the weight of the fish to be at least 30 pounds

e)
the angler’s name, the guide’s name, and the estimated weight of  the fish must be given to the weighmaster at the Tyee Clubhouse on the same day the fish was released.
