From Foxhouses Newsletter
"The first stocking of the year has taken place.   The average weight was a staggering 31/2lb.  We have found that stocking bigger fish is more successful because the fish have a higher survival rate.  Hot summers, cormorants etc. all take their toll, larger fish have more chance but please remember that one of the biggest killers is bad handling.  There is salt on our hands (ever wonder why dogs like to like them).  If your hands are not wet their touch burns through the fishes protective slime and parasites may get in.  
The lake can only hold a certain biomass of fish.  This means our stocking have to be by weight, bigger fish means less fish but we are sure you will appreciate catching better fish rather than just out of condition stockie bashing.  We had the chance of some big browns last year so we took some beautiful 61/2lb. fin perfect, catch of a lifetime, specimens.  There is already a head of brownies grown on from earlier days, now about the 4lb. mark.
PLEASE REMEMBER IT IS A CLUB RULE THAT NO BROWNS ARE KILLED  AND ALSO THAT ALL HOOKS MUST BE BARBLESS OR DE-BARBED "
