York & District Amalgamation of Anglers

YDAA Specimen Fish Records


Below are the current YDAA specimen fish records. These are fish caught by rod and line from waters that are at the time owned or leased by the Amalgamation. Entires for inclusion in the list must be addressed to the Secretary, and accompanied by the names, addresses and signatures of two bona fide witnesses, together with full details of the place and date of capture. Roach record claims must be accompanied by a count of rays in the anal fin, and silver bream entries by a scale count along the lateral line. If it is possible to do so without damaging or distressing the fish, photographic evidence would be most welcome. Record claims will be accepted from full, holiday or day members. The existing records will remain in force until superseded by accredited larger specimens.
