Meetings 2017 - 2018

Up to two rods are allowed at all meetings (except the Aberdeen Open which is a single rod event), maximum 3 hooks per rig. Refer to size tables for the minimum sizes allowed for each species. Anglers presenting undersize fish at the weigh-in will be disqualified. For measure-and-release events minimum sizes do not apply.

A maximum of 3 each of the shoal species (mackerel, saithe etc) can be weighed-in or measured, along with one wrasse and one each mini-species. Wrasse can also be released and witness or photo evidence used, when a nominal 0.5kg will be allowed.

Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Championships are decided on each member's best three results from the group of four meetings. The Overall Championship is decided on the member's best 12 results for the season.
