Carp angler banned

Regrettfully the club committee has had to ban a carp angler for life following an incident in which he was fishing overnight but failed to wake when a fish took his bait. Fortunately another angler who was fishing was alerted by the sound of his alarms and left his bivvy to go and wake the angler in question.

Luckily the fish was landed safely, but the incident highlights the fact that fish welfare is paramount, the need for anglers to behave responsibly, and that the club will take any action necessary to protect stock.
