How do I measure for a reproduction?

Take a measurement of the length from tip of the tail to tip of the mouth. Take a measurement of the girth (around the fish at the largest point).

Most people don’t carry a flexible tape measure with them but there is a way to do it using fishing line.
A. Stretch a piece from head to tail and cut it at exact point.
B. Wrap a piece around the fish at largest point and cut where they intersect.
Save pieces until you get use of a tape measure and measure the two pieces to get length x girth. A good quality picture is also very important.

What do I do with a freshly caught fish?

A couple of photos immediately after the fish is carefully landed. Don’t let the fish thrash around too much and cause damage to itself. You may want to wrap a wet towel around the fish to keep it from thrashing around. To freeze the fish, carefully wrap it in a wet towel(not just damp) making sure the entire fish is covered by the towel. Then slide the fish into a plastic bag and make sure there is no air left in the bag and tape shut. Freezing time depends on size of fish.

How do I ship a frozen fish?

Shipping methods can vary on outdoor temperature, distance, and location of shipment.
