Keep net ban!

Postby lucky me » Fri Mar 23, 2018 7:28 am

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 however agree that a ban is a prudent thing to do, but it should be a blanket ban on all pools.

Why the ban includes rivers I just don't know, it just seems pointless to me!

Why would putting a few roach, dace and chub into a keep net on a river will make any difference at all to the carp within our pools?

There is no logical answer to this part of the keep net ban rule!

Personally I agree, the reason our match anglers can still use keep nets is because the match organiser can and has been instructed to ensure all nets are dried out for a minimum period before the match starts whereas there is no way to monitor an individual on their own.

I will raise your concerns at the next committee meeting.
