To illustrate the connection between casting mastery and fishing success, we’re going to post ACA Member fish photos on our website and in the Creel. We’re interested in photos of anglers with trophy sized live fish, photographed where they were landed.

Email sharp digital photos to The files should be jpeg or tiff at 72 dpi. for the web and 180-300 for The Creel. Also please include the angler’s name, date and place (or water) caught, the tackle and lure/flies used, and the fish’s recorded or estimated, weight and/or dimensions.

The fish in these photos must be caught legally within the last three years by casting artificial lures. No dead fish photos please.The ACA Webmaster or Editor of The Creel will publish any image or story at his/her sole discretion. Please do not send prints or film, for we can’t guarantee their return.
