The NBWF Master Angler Program is now (2015) available and ready to accept your entry forms.
Official rules and additional program information is available by following the above link.
The Master Angler Award Program is completely funded and run by the NBWF.
The program is aimed at promoting and recognizing recreational angling efforts in New Brunswick by adults as well as youth. The NBWF hopes that the program will serve as a vehicle to promote sportfishing in the province and encourage the use of a sustainable natural resource by using friendly competition among anglers of all ages.
All entries must be received by November 30th of the applicable year in order to be eligible.
In order to qualify for the record fish in any species category you must submit a clear side view photo of the fish with a measuring device along side in order to accurately verify the measurements of the fish. Unfortunately entries without a clear photo of the fish without the required measuring device cannot be accepted. Photos will not be returned.
Qualifying Record Fish of the Year entrants will receive an official Master Angler cap, an 8 x 10 certificate, and a Master Angler embroidered crest. For non-qualifying Record Fish of the year entrants: all adult entrants who indicate they released the fish and all entrants age 16 and under will receive a pin or an embroidered Master Angler crest.
It is important to note that awards will not be forwarded or posted on the website until the end of January of the year following the entry.
