Putting a Bass Size Limit on your rod.

With 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.
