Koi Herpes - please read
The club is aware of unconfirmed reports of Koi herpes being present at a lake in the Lea Valley. Please ensure all nets, weigh slings and unhooking mats are completely dry where they have been used on other waters to prevent the spread of any infection.
Box End Farm
When fishing at Box End the wooden five bar gate you have to go through to approach the river has a combination padlock. The code is 1886 - this is not an ACAS padlock. Please drive on the long grass and try to avoid the running track.
