First, it's a privilege to have the views from such an important part of angling heritage present in our community. Glad you decided to join Malcom in our online global angling club.

I am not familiar with any regulations that are based on gender of the species, nor do we have even/odd retention rules. The most fundamental rules (other than length) for salmonids include:
  • catch and release or catch and kill (by water)
  • hatchery fish verses wild fish (adipose fin not removed)
  • quota-based seasons (open till estimated quota killed)
  • seasons determined by expected (predicted) returns
  • seasons driven by time of year (spring natives for instance)
  • some combination of the above

If the C&R mentality of the US and Canada catches on in other parts of the world, it might be a way we can give something back for all that we've gained from centuries of angling lore and wisdom.
