Badge win­ners and news – spon­sored by Ford­ham & Wake­field

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Contents -

There are many spe­cial­ly­des­ig­nated Trout­mas­ters wa­ters in the UK where you can en­ter, and the num­ber of fish­eries join­ing is grow­ing. If you catch a fish at any of these wa­ters you can reg­is­ter it us­ing the of­fi­cial forms, which must be sent to our of­fices within five days of cap­ture. Forms are avail­able at the fish­eries. Se­nior and ju­nior en­try forms are avail­able. Ju­niors must be un­der 14, se­niors aged 14 and over. New this year: An­glers can en­ter fish caught on any-method. How­ever, the Se­nior and Ju­nior fi­nals re­main FLY only. Cap­tors of the three big­gest fish win an ex­clu­sive Trout­mas­ters badge. You could also win an ex­clu­sive Gold Badge if you win five Trout­mas­ters badges each from five dif­fer­ent fish­eries dur­ing the course of the com­pe­ti­tion. At the end of the year all badge win­ners will be in­vited to en­ter a fish-off at the wa­ter where they won the badge to de­cide who will get an in­vi­ta­tion to the Fi­nal. Each fish-off will be run by the fish­ery con­cerned to lo­cal rules, and can in­volve around 36 an­glers. One an­gler from each wa­ter will qual­ify for the Fi­nal. Each com­pe­ti­tion runs from the 21st of the month to the 20th of the next. Judg­ing takes place on the 25th. An award will be made to the most con­sis­tent an­gler of the year.
