Over large black currant bushes

i know not to prune my black currant bushes till winter but can I cut them back by 30-50% now as they are flopping around all over the place or should I tie them in and wait till January ?

    You can prune blackcurrant bushes now. I often prune them just after picking the fruit. Take out the oldest stems completely to the ground, reducing the total number of stems by a third.

    Then cut out any stems that cross and will rub on others  and let disease in.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
