  • While fish are out of the water, they must be kept wet at all times, and treated with the utmost care. If you catch what you think is an injured or unhealthy fish please retain the fish and alert myself or Stewart. You must have a bottle of carp antiseptic.

  • Fish are to be returned to the water as soon as is possible.
