We ( Prince Edward Island)have dropped the retention of grilse from 7 tags per season down to four this year. Also, if you hand in all of your tags at the end of the season your name goes in to a draw for a Sage rod, reel, line and backing. I agree, prizes and the like can be a great way to keep a few extra spawners in our streams.
Nice work Chris.
