Photo Gallery Rules
Only photos of fish that appear to have been caught legally and be in a releasable condition are permitted. We are dedicated towards a conservation approach to angling in this great province, however this does not mean this site is against the legal harvest of fish. We simply request that all photos posted depict a fish that is as unharmed as possible and appears to be in a releasable condition. If you decide to legally harvest the fish after the photo is taken, that is your business.
The only photos of Atlantic salmon permitted are those of salmon caught using a fly within the legal salmon season as outlined by the NS Department of Inland Fisheries.
All photos uploaded to the site will be stamped with a website address watermark used to further promote the site if photos are shared elsewhere online.
