I ask that the Browns are returned, as being a put and take fishery,if you put them in your allowed to take them,as the Brownies are all wild and not put in I ask they are returned.
The wild browns do very well and survive to grow to good sizes due to plenty of feeding in the water and shows that wild fish can do very well among rainbows.

Jim your costs are a not bad for rainbows but browns are way out.If you can get them at those prices Im sure there is some lads on here who would be interested in getting some.Not myself I may add,im happy with what I have.

Last time I fished Williestruther loch (Hawick, Dumfries & Galloway) the ruling was to return all rainbows but you could take a couple of browns. Maybe the 'bows are a little rarer there..........birdsnest

I think there is another more subtle reason...we respect brownies more because they are native and naturally occurring. A lot of angler treat rainbows like meat for the freezer and show them little respect as living beings and quarry.

An example is plastic bag loads of stockies dumped after comps, fishermen stropping because they have not made their bag on commercial put-and-take waters, freezers full of unused fish, even down to the tactics people are quick to switch to in order to make up bag numbers. Even the action of stockbashing is cynical and disrespectful.

A lot of anglers only value rainbows by their deadweight....hence specimen stewponds.
