Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

NGLERS can be a self­ish bunch, but the re­sponses I re­ceived from read­ers say­ing ‘well done’ for our Help Save our Fish­eries story last week re­stored my faith. Af­ter a series of out­breaks of the deadly KHV at sev­eral fish­eries, the angling fam­ily united to help stop the spread to more of our wa­ters by fol­low­ing our sim­ple keep­net and land­ing net guide.

Many an­glers were un­aware of the im­pact that us­ing stink bags and leav­ing nets wet can have on fish­eries by trans­port­ing and har­bour­ing the virus. It only takes one sim­ple piece of ad­vice to pre­vent the spread – leave your nets in the sun equals job done!
