Safety should be of paramount importance whilst you are fishing on holiday. It should be when you are fishing anywhere, of course, but on holiday you will be in an unfamiliar location and you will need to be more aware of local rules and safety specifications.
One of the main reasons you should be mindful of safety and fishing rules is the local wildlife. If you leave fishing rods, hooks and nets lying around, they can be a real danger to animals and wildlife. If you are fishing using a line, you should use a biodegradable version in case it breaks, as animals could get tangled up in it.
Make sure you are aware of the rules in your specific destination, as they might be quite different to the fishing laws and rules back at home. If you don’t follow the rules exactly, you could get into serious trouble or risk injuring yourself and others. Make sure you fish responsibly and sustainably – the rules are there for a reason.
