  1. 2 keepnets must be used and a third one available if required. All three must be fully stretched and laid on bank on arrival and a minimum 15 minutes before start of match commences. One for larger Carp and the other for smaller and silver fish. A third keep net must be to hand in case the catch exceeds this allowance.
  2. A maximum of 70 lb to be kept in any one net. An allowance over in each net of 10 pounds that will not be counted, and should a net weight exceed this amount the net contents will be disqualified. All fish will remain in the nets until the end of the match. Should you decide to leave early under no circumstances must the fish be put back as this may change the catch rate of the angler next to you. Instead if it is necessary that you leave early nominate a friend to empty the net or nets for you at the end of the match.
  3. Fish must not be kept out of water for a longer period than is necessary to weigh and put back the fish.

  6. All fish to be netted. No swing and catch.
  7. For silver and smaller fish do not weigh more than 30lb at a time.
