Section 6 can now only be fish from Peckingell car park side (left hand bank only as you would look down river) only.
There is No access from the new road Peckingell side.
Could all anglers please do the following when fishing any club lakes.
With the ever increasing threat of Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) in the UK we need to help prevent this.
Please ensure any keepnets, landing nets, weight slings and carp mats are 100% dry before use.
Ideally all of the mentioned needs to be dry for a minimum of 48hrs in direct sunlight if possible.
Uv light from the sun is one of the best preventions for KHV.
All matches, anglers must lay out their nets when arriving at their peg even if it is raining.
Nets can be placed in the water 5 minutes before the match begins.
