Enjoy and Stay Safe

The main summer holidays have arrived and whether you’re taking a family holiday, going on a fishing trip of fishing locally it’s probably a good time to brush up on safety for anglers and their families.

Please take a look at our page FOR YOUR SAFETY , found under the heading ABOUT W&DAC for a little information. It’s a good time to pay attention to Lyme Disease if you’re going to be out and about in trees, long grass or the like.

Lyme Disease.

This is usually transmitted by the bite of the Black Legged Tick; also known as the Deer Tick.

Ticks could be present in fields and on the riverbank in long grasses, on trees and bushes waiting for deer or an angler to brush through. They may attach themselves to exposed areas of skin and can cause serious illness. Check for ticks and if found remove the tick using tweezers and disinfect the affected area.

Report any unexplained fever or rash (bull’s eye shape) at the bite site to your doctor as soon as possible.

Giant Hog Weed.

Be sure to keep away from Giant Hog Weed, this is a nasty plant which can cause serious problems.
