Keepnet rules update

The following rule changes were agreed at the 7th Nov committee meeting on a trial basis:

Amended rule 5.15:  No Carp to be kept in Keepnets except in society matches (see rule 9.3) all other fish up to 5lb (approx weight) may be retained in Keepnet. All fish over 5lb (approx weight) to be weighed/returned to the water immediately.

A maximum of 30lb of fish to be kept in any one Keepnet.

Anglers are encouraged to carry more than one Keepnet.

The above rules do not apply to society rivers.

No fish to be kept in captivity for longer than 6 hours.

Any fish showing signs of distress must be released upon demand of a society bailiff.

Anglers must, upon request of a bailiff, pull in nets to clear themselves on the above rules.

The society recommends that members be in possession of a fish care product e.g. Klinik.

Keepnet may be banned temporarily on individual society waters subject to local conditions or outbreaks if waterborne disease.

 

Amended rule 9.3:  Any fish (including carp) up to 5lb (approx weight) caught during society matches can be retained in carp friendly keepnets.

Other fish must be weighed, witnessed by another angler and released immediately.

The 30lb per net rule (see rule 5.15) applies even in matches.

Any breach of the above will result in disqualification from the match.
