a Bass Size Limit on your rod.
the new 40cm Bass Minimum Landing Size implementation still delayed, you can take
preemptive action by marking your rod at the 40cm or even higher 45cm mark by
putting an elastic band around your butt section when measured from the rod butt
end up the rod. Take a small elastic band and wind it as many times as required
around the butt section until it's nice and snug. Measure the point on the rod
where it should sit for the above sizes and once it's there, you can use it for
quickly and easily measuring fish.
However, just because you catch a magnificent fish over the Minimum Landing Size,
We'd still encourage you to slip it back and bask in the self satisfaction of
having caught a fish of this size and then setting it free.
