With immediate effect, can all Members please note that your Committee is introducing a 60lbs weight limit for all keep-nets. This applies equally in competitions, but also those pleasure anglers who wish to utilise a keep-net during a session. Your Committee have taken this step in response to the greatly improved fishing being experienced at Little Rowfant Lakes recently, where the works have been completed to open up new swims, & some additional selective stocking has taken place.
For those attending competitions, we strongly suggest three nets be in the possession of each competitor – it is of course already a requirement to segregate carp & silvers. We have seen match weights increasing in excess of 100lbs, & your Committee is concerned as to fish welfare & maintaining the excellent fishing on this prolific water. Your Committee will be looking to implement a rule change at the April 2020 AGM to see the above introduced formally.
