Just by looking at the records you can see why the Netherlands is a superb country for anglers. Thanks to our ‘catch & release-culture’ fish can reach specimen size. In spring 2017 Sportvisserij Nederland and angling magazine Beet joined forces to register all freshwater angling records in the BNRZ list.
Restaurants that claim to have a responsible menu are wrong with fish. Research at 500 restaurants that say sustainability is important, shows that at least 81% of the restaurants a species on the menu that scores red on the VISwijzer.
The Good Fish Foundation (publisher of the VISwijzer) examined the menu of 500 restaurants that had indicated in 2016 on the Dinnersite restaurant site to work with the VISwijzer. On 81% of these menu cards there was at least one species that scored red on the VISwijzer. Of this 81%, 32% of the total menu has one red fish on the menu, 30% has 2 red fish species and the remaining 19% even has 3 or more red fish on the menu.
The use of fishing lead, which anglers use to weigh up their fishing line, is unhealthy and bad for the environment and must eventually be completely eliminated. Minister Schouten agreed with Sportvisserij Nederland, Natuurmonumenten, the Unie van Waterschappen and branch organization Divebo.
To ensure that less lead is used in 2021, the retail trade will in the coming period advise more on fully-fledged sustainable alternatives such as stone, glass and iron. There will also be a campaign about the disadvantages of lead reinforcement. In addition, areas must be designated where fishing is no longer permitted.

The Fishmigration River is an opening in the Afsluitdijk where migratory fish can swim through to reach the IJsselmeer lake from the Wadden Sea and vice versa. Migratory fish need freshwater and saltwater for their life cycle. Due to dykes and dams such as the Afsluitdijk, that is hardly possible. It is an important reason why it is so bad with migratory fish.
This annual fly fishing event is held in springtime in The Netherlands. There are workshops, (second-hand) fly fishing equipment, casting programs and so on.
The fish spawning areas are a kind of nursery for fish. It provides the fish with pleasant conditions to breed and grow. At first we have to help the pike to find the way to a new spawning place. Pike plants - like salmon - propagate on the spot where they were born. After a number of years they thus find their way to the fish spawning place.
This movie was shot in a lake between the cities of Rotterdam and Gouda in the southwest of The Netherlands.
A fly fisherman from Roden caught a rare sea trout in the Peizerdiep. The fish was released in Drenthe, but also swam in the Wadden Sea for some time. The fish comes from Germany and was plotted years ago in the Groote Diep. He probably lived in the stream for a year and left for the sea. "He grew up there and then returned to the head of Drenthe", says director Henk Mensinga of the Fishing Federation Groningen Drenthe.
There will be an interview about volunteering and the drive for doing it.
