The results of fish samples taken for analysis by CEFAS have now confirmed that KHV is present at Hunstrete and is the cause of fish deaths.

In accordance with directives from CEFAS the complex must remain closed until no fish deaths have been recorded for 14 days.

Any further updates regarding this matter will be posted when available.

Hunstrete complex will be closed until further notice

Good Afternoon all hope your all well. As from tomorrow Tuesday 20th Sept the Hunstrete complex will be closed until further notice. We have had a few dead carp on Withy Pool and we are not really sure what is going on. We have called in the E.A just to be on the safe side as soon as we get any answers we will let you know. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Dave Crookes Memorial Match

Good afternoon all hope your all well.
A massive thank you to all of you who turned up to fish the Dave Crookes memorial Match at the weekend. Two matches were run over the weekend, a 6 hour match on Withy Pool and a 24hr match on the main lake. Thank you to all who donated raffle prizes.

It was very much appreciated. Also a massive thank you to the guys who organised the event and stayed all night to weigh the fish caught on the main lake you all did a fantastic job. The amount raised for the uk lung foundation in memory of Dave Crookes was £608 which B A A will be rounding up to £1000. So once again thank you all for your support and hopefully see you all again next year to do it all again.
