Big Fish 2017-2018 season

 

 

In each season between 1st March and 28th February, at the discretion of the Committee, a trophy will be awarded for the heaviest fish of each species caught by a member on rod and line in Society waters. Each entry must be weighed and witnessed by two other persons and details sent to the Webmaster or Secretary. Please return such fish alive to the water.

The new season has started for the Big Fish Competition and it opens with a cracking Carp weighing in at exactly 17lb.
