WHAT YOU NEED TO CLAIM A RECORD

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

The weigh­ing of any po­ten­tial record fish should be wit­nessed by at least two other peo­ple. If the an­gler is alone, the BRFC will ac­cept a writ­ten af­fi­davit (le­gal oath).

Good-qual­ity pho­tos should show

the fish ly­ing next to an iden­ti­fi­able ob­ject and with the an­gler hold­ing the fish in the nor­mal man­ner or, in the case of a very large fish, pos­ing be­side it.

Your scales must weigh in ap­pro­pri­ate di­vi­sions (gen­er­ally ounces for larger coarse fish) and be fully cal­i­brated af­ter the cap­ture by a weights and mea­sures team.

Full de­tails at www.angling trust.net The scales are tested against stan­dard weights.
