    looks like the grass they are laying on is long enough and soft enough to not be a problem.

    'Would you lay a carp or barbel on the grass?'







    Yes, don't see the problem if it's long and soft enough.

    look if you lay fish on the grass then fine but i for one prefer to lay them on a unhooking mat!
    its all down to fish welfare and in my book a wet un hooking mat is the safe and correct way avoiding scratches and rips to the fish and also avoids the fish from loosing scales by rubbing on un even surfaces ie....GRASS and mud.
    but dont worry Jonny if you like doing the other fine !


    p.s nice to see your still around!

    didnt mean to upset one !
    was just putting my point accross thats all.
    and im not one for getting het up about stuff.yes it makes a good photo as it brings the colour of your catch out its just that i have seen what can happen when fish flap on the grass as it removes the protsctive slime from the fish and in some cases can cut the fish so its not good practice thats all but well done in catching them and i to catch much bigger fish but use a mat for photos and unhooking.i dont take you as anything as i have never met you so dont put people in any catagory antill i have had chance to meet them. (unless people go out there way to p*&s me off)
    so if my comments have upset you in any way i sorry!

    What we should have is unhooking mats which look like grass, the same as real tree.

    There is nothing worse than a picture of an unhooking mat in the frame. It ruins the composition of the photo entirely.

    Personally I find that wet grass does very little harm
