Water tight stink bags / net bags are not allowed round the lakes please leave in your car or carpark
All keepnets should be stretched out and air dried in the wind and sun before fishing starts
(this is the only way to stop the spread of disease via keepnets)

Organiser’s will decide if nets are fish friendly or not. (Any net with more than 60lb of fish in it will only count as max 60lb! plus angler liable to disqualification if an objection is lodged)
Do not roll fish down keepnets when weighing in use the keepnet code if you are not sure how to transfer your fish from your keepnet to the weigh net without damaging fish then please ask for help?
