Fly Fishers International welcomes Single Hooks as a conservation partner.
FFI is pleased to announce our new conservation partner SingleHooks. A growing conservation movement with supporters in over 30 countries. SingeHooks aims to draw upon science, empirical evidence and expert knowledge to build a compelling case for:
1. Recreational angling: single (circle) hook use in place of multi-point hooks in support of succesful catch & release, which also includes those fishing to eat.
2. Commercial sea fisheries: circle hook use in all commercial longline fisheries to minimise by-catch of non-target fish and other wildlife species.
