INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS. RIG CHECKS

INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS.

Members are reminded that barbed and micro-barbed hooks

are not permitted to be used on lakes under BAA control.

Bailiffs will perform ad-hoc checks on rigs to enforce this rule.

ANY member found using prohibited hooks will be asked to

surrender their membership and be issued with a “producer”

and asked to leave the fishery and membership is suspended.

A disciplinary hearing will take place and the member may

attend.

The member loses BAA membership rights and may not attend

fisheries during the period of being suspended.

It is extremely likely that the result of the hearing will be a

ban.

Withy Pool Hunstrete

WITHY POOL CLOSED 16.8.2017

 INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS REGARDING TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF    WITHY POOL

As a precaution, it was decided to close Withy Pool for the time being as some carp had been seen to have red spots externally.

On advice from CEFAS we will continue to monitor the situation but closure is likely to last at least two weeks.

During this time BAA officials may be seen fishing at Withy Pool to allow for sample viewing of carp as advised by CEFAS.

Due to the sudden arrival of the situation, the match on Bridge Pool on Thursday 17th August will go ahead as scheduled but future matches may be postponed.

BAA apologises for any inconvenience to members but it is paramount that the wellbeing of the stock is maintained.

Members will be informed of any further updates and information when known

The decision to reopen Main Lake was taken today after further inspections that saw no further signs of any fish showing lethargic type symptoms or any abnormalities.

Members are urged to continue to use the provided dip tanks.
