Lifestyle of Stewardship, S.A.F.E. Angling
Recycled Fish is the national non-profit organization of anglers living a Lifestyle of Stewardship both on and off the water, because "Our Lifestyle Runs Downstream".
We started out talking about Catch and Release, but it’s bigger than that now. If we want to catch more and bigger fish today and leave healthy waters for our grandkids, it takes living a Lifestyle of Stewardship both on and off the water.
On the water, we promote the S.A.F.E. Angling concept – "Sustaining Angling, Fish and Ecosystems". It’s the practices and products we can use to live as stewards when we’re on the water. It’s non-toxic and biodegradable tackle, single barbless hooks, and it’s cleaning up trash when we find it. It's not just Catch and Release, Selective Harvest is part of living as a steward on the water, too. "Limit Your Catch – Don’t Catch Your Limit!"
