I have heard anecdotally that some feel fishermen seed waters with small eels
Probably a little like releasing Otters.
People talk about it but not a single person has come forward who has actually seen it.
Given the numbers of eels in some places and the problems of catching and handling small eels I would doubt it was feasible, but in nature I would never say never.
This discussion will run and run until actual eveidence is forthcoming, bit like the two rats teaming up tp steal hens eggs and the (still unclaimed) reward for a photograph of it happening.

Hi Guys, great thread....
I have recently joined a club where Eels are present and I intend to give it a whirl next weekend. Can't wait!!.
Ordered some of the recommended circle hooks too.
Do you use a hair with these hooks?
Or tie them directly to the hooklink?
Baitwise I'm planning on using dead roach pieces on 1 rod and perhaps mussels or worms on the other.

Great thread with some great anglers involved too!

I use hair on fish sections and on the hook for worms. Circle hooks, wind down, don't strike.
Did I say this already?

Eels....Ugh, horrible things, all slimy and horrible. Did you know that they are also smack heads?
