Th­ese self­ish fools are putting waters at risk

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

IT’S great to see that more an­glers ap­pear to be tak­ing steps to help pre­vent dis­eases such as KHV spread­ing, but I still see some that aren’t do­ing their bit.

My lo­cal fish­ery al­lows you to park be­hind your peg, and I reg­u­larly see peo­ple take their kit

out, set up their seat­box and then chuck their keep­net in straight away, mo­ments af­ter it has come out of a stink bag that could har­bour all sorts of in­fec­tions.

Dry­ing your nets out on the bank for a while be­fore you start fish­ing is no hard­ship, and the ar­ro­gance of some peo­ple who don’t bother to take this sim­ple step re­ally does an­noy me.

They don’t seem to care what hap­pens to the fish­ery once they have gone, as long as they catch a shed­load of fish there and then.

If their nets passed on a killer dis­ease they’d soon have to look for some­one else to bag up. Richard Charles, Bos­ton
