    Default weight of fish ?

    As a beginner how do you weigh a fish in order to keep a log of your catch. I know the more you fish the easier it get's and you will know the weight just by holding the net. But where do you start?

    Buy some pocket digital scales and weigh the net with the fish in it, then subtract the weight of your net.

    Otherwise forget all about weights, they mean nothing anyway. Length is easier to gauge and is just another number, the same as a weight.

    Thanks for that i was just wondering about weight as some stillwaters have a 2 fish c+k then c+r but only for fish under 3lb and i didnt want to end up paying a extra charge at the end of the day. Thanks Brett

    Ahh, I see. You can pick up an ample set of pocket digital scales for 10 - 15

    You can get a very simple net with built in scales for about the same price.
    All fishermen are liars except for you and me, and to tell you the truth, I'm not sure about you.

    I never weigh fish, just something I don't need to do, but a few mates have those scales for weighing salmon in nets and they say they're good.

    most rods have extra whippings on the butt section at measured intervals, lets you gauge surprisingly accurately, and there are loads of conversion charts on the net.

    and a previous post here..
