At the Angling Trust we’ve recently made contact with the National Anguilla Club who have a very important message for all anglers targeting Eel’s. The message is as follows…

“Here at the National Anguilla Club we are dedicated to Eels and Eel Welfare.. This year has seen the NAC launching its “lip hook your eels” campaign promoting safer Eel fishing methods to prevent Eels from swallowing the hook which could potentially be fatal. These magnificent and mysterious creatures have an incredible life cycle and take years to reach our shores and decades to grow to specimen size… Therefore it is so important that we do everything we can to fish for them safely, knowing that when we return them to the wild after capture they can continue, safely,  on their remarkable life journey…  Our safe lip hooking methods can be found at: https://www.nationalanguillaclub.co.uk/liphookyoureels or you can follow us on Facebook” #liphookyoureels
