Fish are sensitive creatures and a fisherman should always treat them with care. If you caught an especially vulnerable fish, such as pike or salmon then extra attention will be required to ensure their health is not compromised by your catch-and-release fishing practices.
The unhooking mat should be a tool in every fisherman’s arsenal. There are many varieties of mats, making it easy to find the perfect one for you and your fishing needs. The low-priced models make them an affordable addition to any angler’s gear without breaking their bank account while still maintaining high quality features like nonstick surfaces that allow debris from fish scales or slime to simply slide off the surface with minimal effort on behalf of the user.
