This message was originally posted on our old forum on Bravenet.

The Irish Federation of Pike Angling Clubs wishes to announce the publication of an educational ‘pike angling conservation leaflet’. It is our hope that information contained within the leaflet, will provide experienced and inexperienced anglers with a clear understanding of issues surrounding the welfare of pike. Information on unhooking and handling, appropriate tackle, the Regional Fisheries Boards and the current pike angling legislation are included.

30,000 leaflets will receive wide distribution to anglers through numerous avenues such as angling magazines, tourist accommodation providers, tackle shops and the ‘Angling Ireland’ angling show in Swords on the 17th/18th of February.

The Irish Federation of Pike Angling Clubs clearly recognise that education is a responsibility that we all share and as such we take our role seriously in an Ireland that sees increasing pressure on our angling resource. Please feel free to print off the attached leaflet.

Thank you Webmaster.

For anglers reading this, please take the time to download and print off a copy of the leaflet. The leaflets themselves went to print this week so I have been promised that some will be ready to pick up on Friday in time for the angling show.

As per the statement on the front page of the site and above, we recognise the need for an educational campaign, to promote a better understanding and respect for pike, particularly so as the pressure on the resource can be quite demanding. We hope the leaflets will go some way to accomplish this aim.

In terms of content, there is no doubt other points of information could have been added, however in the interest of trying not to condense too much information, it is hoped that we at least have a platform that will allow anglers to become fully informed.

I anticipate that most tackle shops and affiliated clubs should have copies within the coming month, with other avenues following.
