    has codified a new set of Release Rules to clarify and support the ideals of ethical recreational angling It is IGFA s hope that establishing a definition for an official IGFA release will not only institute a standard by which anglers can compare releases but also and more importantly encourage anglers to continue releasing fish At its recent annual board meeting in January the IGFA Board of Trustees approved the following IGFA will consider a fish officially released when one of the following actions is completed A The mate is able to grab the leader B The swivel hits the rod tip C The connection knot splice etc between the leader and the mainline double line fly line passes through the rod tip Leader lengths must conform to current IGFA tackle requirements Specifically for line up to and including 10 kg 20 lb the leader may not exceed 15 feet In lines over 10 kg 20 lb the leader may not be in excess of 30 feet All leader measurements are inclusive of the lure or hook arrangement and are measured to the bend of the last hook IGFA tackle requirements for fly fishing do not stipulate a maximum overall length for fly leaders However since IGFA rules do not allow class tippets heavier than 10 kg 20 lb IGFA will adopt the convention of allowing a maximum fly leader length of 15 feet in keeping in accordance with the regulations for conventional tackle Fly leader length is inclusive of the fly and will be measured to the bend of the last hook Shock tippets may not measure more than 12 inches 30 48 cm in length and class tippets must be a minimum of 15 inches 38 10 cm in length This new rule sets a standard for a
