Representing Invicta in AMFC Matches

2019 Team coordinator David Moore 

hardy-soul-david-moore-fished-into-a-strong-wind-most-of-the-dayInvicta has been a keen supporter of the AMFC league since it was formed 30 years ago and this friendly competition is a great way to improve our skills through fishing a variety of waters with some top class anglers.

Invicta will have two teams again, the A team will be in Group 1, while the B team fishes in Group 3. All three groups fish as teams of 4 in the first and last matches of the season but the other matches were separate Group events for teams of 6.

Rules for 2019 will be 4 fish kill and 4 released with a time bonus.  Anglian Water bronze season permits will be valid for the matches on Rutland,  Grafham and Pitsford.

There is usually one away trip to Chew and /or Bewl which are always good fun with most of us enjoying a practice day and an overnight stay. We share transport and B&B to keep the cost down so it’s a great chance to fish these famous venues in good company and at a modest price.

The current rules restrict each angler to a maximum of 4 of the 6 matches and you can only fish one of the first or last matches so we really need a pool of anglers for each team.

The 2019 venues will be selected from Bewl, Chew, Draycote, Grafham, Pitsford, Eyebrook, Farmoor and Rutland Water.

I started fishing for our B team eight years ago when I was a relative novice and it has improved my fishing more than anything else I can think of. Everyone has been a pleasure to fish with, working together and combining fun with a competitive edge. I will circulate members with entry forms in time to have everything sorted by mid-March.

In the meantime please drop me an email if you want to support Invicta this season, even if it’s only for 1 or 2 events, having a full team is vital and catching a single fish can be crucial to the teams success.

Invicta Teams for 2019 

We are entering two loch-style teams into the AMFC again this year, A Team in Group 1 which we won last year, and our B Team in Group 3.

We had a great response from members last year with 24 taking part and I hope this will be repeated.

The A team is selected on past competition performance and availability with the aim of having the best team, while the B team is competitive but gives less experienced an opportunity to develop their skills alongside more experienced anglers. The Club pays the team entry fees so only normal fishing fees apply.

The teams selected for all the six rounds will be shown in below once arranged:

More details will follow nearer the time for each fixture when I will also nominate  a captain  for each day to coordinate practice and transport and post-match meal for the team.  This should be straightforward but please let me know if this is a problem for you.


Invicta Team Performance from 2000 to 2018

Jeff Hickson has provided the historic team results for our AMFC teams which makes interesting reading. It highlights the great improvement in success of our ‘A Team’ over the years and the consistency of the A Team rod average above that of the ‘B Team’.

This is what you would expect as Invicta have a policy of encouraging new and less experienced anglers to enter this competitive, yet friendly league. In the past few seasons the ‘B Team results have also shown a marked improvement and promotion to a higher division is achievable given the very strong ‘B Team’ that we currently are able to put out.
