In my haste to allow the use of keepnets back at BoPeep l didn't get enough information before making the decision.
Apparently Signal crayfish hibernate through the winter months, & this could be why none have been seen. I think to be on the safe side it would be wise to keep the keepnet ban in place until the spring & see if there is any new sightings. I apologise to the membership & take full responsibility for this mistake. I ask that all members fishing BoPeep to report to any bailiff or committee member if they catch any signal crayfish please.
Tight Lines Andy.
