Over the course of the last few decades, releasing fish has become an increasingly common practice. Whether by choice or by regulation, many anglers regularly release fish. In both cases the objective is to return a healthy fish to the water.
Help stop the spread of invasive plants and animals in British waters.
Invasive non-native species can have a damaging impact on British plants, animals and ecosystems - by spreading disease, competing for habitat and food and direct predation.
Plants that grow profusely can block waterways while some animals can damage riverbanks - so they also affect economic uses of our environment and add significant management costs.
As a water user, you may unknowingly be helping to spread invasive species from one water body to another in equipment, shoes and clothing.
Help stop this happening by following three simple steps: Check, Clean, Dry.
"Drew Jaimieson has been a long term friend of United Clyde and frequently wrote enthusiastically about the Clyde in his weekly columns in the Scotsman during the 1980s. He has recently been persuaded to publish some of his writings in three paperbacks which are now available from Amazon at a price of £10 each. The Clyde gets a mention in each of them. They are a very pleasant read being extremely well written which is exactly what I expected from this gentleman and fellow angler."
