I have no idea why... Who mentioned putting Carp in keepnets?Why put carp in a keepnet ? I know it happens in matches, but there is a weight limit on each net, and most match carp average around 6lb, but bigger ones can be caught.
If overnighting a carp in a keepnet would be in for a fair few hours, same with a carp sack or tube.
I was alluding to the idea that it might be nice to place a Roach, Bream or maybe a Tench in one but unfortunately, because two out of the three waters on a current book have Carp in them, I'm excluded from doing so either by the keepnet ban itself or the unlikely chance (and even less likely, enjoyable) of catching a few Roach on the 10lb minimum line rule.
Keepnets appear to be reluctantly allowed, by prior arrangement, on the other.
I rarely use one and struggle to remember the last time I did but it would be nice to have the choice and be credited with the common sense that I would be able to make my own judgements on the size of fish retained and the length of time they are retained for.
