NO PELLETS are to be used as hook bait or loosefeed.
This is for both of the lakes at Pockeridge only.
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.
