Lesley-Anne Walker contributed this reminder about good fishing etiquette:
Several beach walkers have mentioned to me the fish skeletons left on the beach…
These are generally from people with their kontikis who gut and fillet their catch before they go back home.
Fishers should take a spade down and at least bury the remains and not let them get floating about in the water where people swim or where you could stand on them in the shallows.
It’s a simple thing to do.
Leaving them for the seagullsis laziness and thoughtless to those who want a swim.
It’s just good fishing etiquette.
We’ve all probably stumbled across fish skeletons like this on the beach … sometimes half a dozen or more at a time. So, fishing folks: add a spade to your equipment pile and please bury the bits you’re not taking home.
