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.
