In my local pond complex (Bestwood duck Ponds) No 2 pond is the only pond where Bivvies and alarms are allowed. However on a daily basis i see these rules being broken as well as the rules on fishing from the peg only and also the use of three or more rods (only 2 allowed). Most people seem to stick to these rules but the minority are giving the carpers a bad name on this complex which is also used by non-carp anglers. For me though the worst rule being broken is the one where you are only allowed to fish from the actual peg you are in and its this rule which when broken causes the most conflict. Just this weekend two anglers bivvied up from Fri-Tues and took up 8 pegs ina ll and when anyone tried to fish the other pegs simply got a mouthful of abuse. On such a small pond these anglers should show not only respect for the rules but also their fellow anglers.
