What is an unhooking mat and why should I buy one?

An unhooking mat is a padded mat specifically designed to lay fish on during the catch and release process. It provides a soft and protective surface for the fish, reducing the risk of injury to its scales, skin and overall body. Buying one is crucial for responsible angling as it ensures the fish's safety and well-being, promoting their health and increasing the chances of their survival upon release.

What is a fish cradle?

A fish cradle is a type of protective gear designed to hold fish during unhooking, weighing and photographing. Unlike flat unhooking mats, fish cradles have raised sides that help contain and support the fish, providing added protection and preventing them from flipping or rolling off the mat.

What is a weigh sling for fishing?

A weigh sling is a sling made from fish-friendly material used to weigh fish accurately without causing harm. Anglers place the fish inside the sling, and then suspend the sling from a scale, ensuring the weight of the fish is evenly distributed and preventing injury during the weighing process.

Should I buy a folding unhooking mat?

A folding unhooking mat can be a great choice for anglers who prioritise portability and storage efficiency. They can be folded into a compact size, making them convenient to carry and store. If you often travel for fishing or have limited storage space, a folding unhooking mat can be a valuable addition to your fishing gear.
