SHILLINGLEE DAY TICKET FISHING
KHV DISEASE IS DEADLY AND LIKELY TO KILL EVERY CARP IN THE LAKE. THERE IS NO CURE. ALL WE CAN DO IS TAKE PREVENTIVE ACTION. ALL LANDING NETS MUST BE BONE DRY BEFORE ENTERING THE FISHERY. ALL LANDING NETS , CARP SACKS UNHOOKING MATS TO BE HUNG UP IN THE TREES AND TAKEN DOWN WHEN A FISH IS CAUGHT .U.V. RADIATION KILLS THE VIRUS. DO NOT THINK BECAUSE YOU HAVE DIPPED YOUR NET IN A DIP TANK AT SOME OTHER FISHERY YOUR NET IS FREE FROM THE VIRUS. THE E.A. HAVE TOLD ME THAT UNLESS THE NET IS LEFT IN THE DISINFECTANT FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES THE VIRUS MAY STILL SURVIVE.
THIS YEAR WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL VERY LARGE CARP CAUGHT. WE HAVE ALSO FOUND SEVERAL LOST RIGS WITH BARBED OR MICRO BARBED HOOKS.
ANYONE FOUND USING BARBED OR MICROBARBED HOOKS (OTHER THAN FOR PIKE FISHING UNDER THE AMENDED RULES WHEREBY 2 MICRO BARBED TREBLES ARE NOW ALLOWED) WILL BE BANNED FOR LIFE. NO SLACK LINES PLEASE.ALSO KEEP LINES TIGHT AND LOCKED UP WHEN FISHING NEAR SNAGS AND LILLY PADS; IF YOU WANT YOUR LINE ON THE BOTTOM PLEASE USE A SLIDING BACK LEAD.
MAY WE ALSO REMIND EVERYONE THAT FISH HEALTH IS PARAMOUNT. WHEN YOU CATCH A FISH THAT YOU WISH TO WEIGH OR PHOTOGRAPH, PREPARATIONS MUST BE MADE BEFORE THE FISH IS LIFTED FROM THE WATER. THE FISH MUST NOT BE OUT OF THE WATER FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD.
WE WILL BE CHECKING RIGS REGULARLY SO PLEASE DO NOT TAKE OFFENCE AS WE MUST PROTECT THE FISH THAT GIVE US OUR SPORT.
