Re: Keep net ban!

I give up! The reason ''I give up'' is I think you are now ''clutching at straws'' and that I did not misunderstand what you were saying. I believe you just thought it up because you know you have lost the argument. Any river water owner or renter has absolutely no control over keepnets being used ...

Re: Keep net ban!

We are leaving as I already explained because of the Wixford water loss (which was the main reason we joined) and the ban on keepnets in rivers. Here is an extra reason for thinking the total ban is ''over-the-top'' You say there is some risk in allowing keepnets on rivers, but I say if you look at ...

Re: Keep net ban!

The risk is so small that it is highly unlikely it will ever happen. As I said before, I have never even heard of a case of KHV being reported in river carp. If this is the case and it is not in river fish, there is no risk at all. By far the greatest risk and totally uncontrollable is the risk of w...

Re: Keep net ban!

It is ridiculous to compare the carp in rivers to overstocked carp pools! And as far as I know, but I may be wrong, there have not been any reports of river carp showing the KHV disease. River carp are rarely caught and those that fish for them are the type of angler that don't put them in keep nets.

Re: Keep net ban!

I have not seen any movement concerning the keepnet ban on the rivers!

Due to this fact and the loss of the Arrow venue, ABAC will be short three members this coming season.

Keep net ban!

If the club is really serious about protecting the carp from KHV, then keep nets on our pools should be banned - period! It is just as likely a match angler could cause an infection as a pleasure angler. Because birds and animals ''do their own thing'' it is probably a waste of time anyway. I do how...

Muntjac v Dog

Two of us went to Bradley Green today (22 March 2018) and had an extraordinary experience. About 1pm, there is an almighty splash on the far side of the pool, quickly followed by a second splash. It turned out to be a Muntjac deer being chased by a large dog, which at first my mate thought was a fox...

No new code!

Fished Bradley Green today and found the gate-code for this year did not work.
Fortunately we remembered the code for last year, so it was OK.
Any new members would be in trouble, so this needs sorting.
