What to do if you catch a good fish
Two of the Clubs annual Trophies are for the heaviest rainbow and the heaviest Brown trout caught by an Invicta member on a day ticket reservoir.
If you catch a fish which you think may be in contention, please fill in the form and email Gary How and copy Mark Searle into the email. Alternatively the form can be posted.
The fish must be weighed and the weight witnessed by a second person and should ideally be accompanied by a photograph of the fish being held or placed beside something such as the rod handle and reel to give it scale. Brown Trout must be in season to qualify. Forms are available on the Trophy Winners webpage.

Invicta on Facebook
The page has been set up and is hosted by Andy Newman and gives those joining it the opportunity to read comments left by other members and post messages of their own. So for example if you have visited a fishery that impressed you; know that a particular event is happening or just have some thoughts you wish to air, why not share it with others.
Usual rules of common sense apply i.e. nothing offensive or libelous.
