This is a spring buck that I released the other day. Just looking at the photo - it appears to be clipped. Anyone else caught any of these?
Geez Rib you should get your eyes checked, I think they're going with your old age too :drunk:Flyfishin Magician said:Ah - yes that's right! I heard of the head recovery too. It will be pretty tough to keep the head though - as I released this fish... :thumbup:
Sounds like a Floy Tag or Spaghetti Tag that is used to study the migration and growth of the salmon. There is a serial number on that tag. DFO will cross reference the number. From the area the fish was taged at. Too its final destination like its home river at spawning time. :cheers: sageXray said:On saturday I caught a spring with a yellow wire pierced through its body just below the dorsal fin.
It extended back about 5 inches on each side.
The fish seemed to be in good shape and swam away fine.
What other fin did you have in mind because I am fairly certain they need the other ones. :happy:HOOK said:I think this is a great idea but they should have clipped a different fin because this can get extremely confusing for people that dont know how to ID fish properly :wallbash:
Its not just for the springs, its for all salmon that are clipped, mainly springs and hos.beveratt said:It is indeed for the chinook tagging program. Participation is voluntary but most folks I talk to don't participate because of their general dislike for our government ministries. Maybe because they really don't care about the average fisherman and and have a complete disregard for what we have to say.
