DRY YOUR NETS OUT
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!
