IMPORTANT NEWS REGARDING KHV

The club would like to inform all readers that we have been made aware that there have been possible outbreaks of KHV (Koi Herpes Virus) in lakes that are local to this area.

The KHV virus is highly contageous and deadly to the carp species, and can typically kill 4 out of 5 fish it infects. If our fish stocks became infecte,d the effects would be devastating as there is no known cure for this disease.

You are urged to ensure that all nets, matts and slings are thoroughly dry when arriving at any waters. If at all possible, these items of tackle should be dry for at least 48hours prior to arrival.
Drying in direct sunlight is the preferred method of drying out tackle.

For further information on the KHV virus, please visit the CEFAS website as well as reading these useful advice notes produced by the Environment Agency:
