The continuing spread of diseases such as Koi Herpes Virus (KHV), Carp Edema Virus (CEV) and Spring Viraemia of Carp (SVC) means 'biosecurity' is of paramount importance. The "Check, Clean, Dry" regieme not only protects against viral disease but will also prevent the spread of other fish parasites and 'non-native' aquatic plant and animal species.
Any damp or wet fishing tackle or gear is a huge risk (not just landing nets) so make sure all your gear is clean and completely, thoroughly dry before entering onto the fishery. Thorough drying, ideally in sunlight, is the best form of disinfection. Net dips cannot be relied upon due to contamination, dilution, exposure time and the fact that many items are never dipped; it is not just about nets but also slings, mats, stink bags and even potentially moisture in tubing or in braid !. Anything, infact, that has been in contact with fish or the water.
Protect the Fish - Make absolutely sure it is all DRY.
