Trophy Freshwater Fish Awards

Anglers have come to realize that "bragging rights" are only as "good as the paper they are written on." So, today's anglers receive an official trophy fish award certificate for their catch of each trophy-size fish registered with the Virginia Angler Recognition Program. Certificates adorn a water color rendition of the species of fish caught by the angler, and are personalized with the angler's name, the catch date, and the weight and/or length of the fish.
