SECTION 2. The membership will consist of the following classes:

 

A. Active Members: All members of the same household living at the same address that are 18 years or older. Only individuals of the same household listed on the initial application for membership form or on the annual dues renewal form will be considered active members. Members of the household who are under 18 years of age will be considered junior members if so requested. A member of the household who turns 18 in any given year will be considered an active member in the next following year, if so indicated on the dues renewal form. Life Members are Active Members.

 

B. Junior Members: Anglers under the age of eighteen (18) years. A junior member need not reside in the same household as an active member but each junior member must have an active member sponsor

 

C. Inactive Members: Any current member in good standing, who because of illness or adverse financial circumstances, is unable to participate actively in the

affairs of the Club, provided such angler makes a written or verbal request to the Board of Directors to be placed in the class of inactive Membership. Final approval of membership status to Inactive Membership shall require a majority vote by the Board of Directors. Inactive status shall be reviewed annually by the Board of Directors and may be continued or discontinued by a majority vote of the Board of Directors. A Distinguished Member, who requests an Inactive Membership, shall be granted Inactive status without Board of Directors approval.

 

D. Honorary Members: The Board of Directors may, from time to time, by majority vote elect to Honorary Membership persons possessing the qualifications deemed sufficient to warrant such action. Honorary members shall not be required to pay any fees or dues to this corporation. It is the intent of this membership classification to honor those non-members who over a continuing period of time have given their support to the Los Angeles Rod and Reel Club, and/or made significant contributions to the sportfishing community.

 

The Board of Directors shall review the status of every Honorary Member not less than every two years, and, by majority vote, shall determine if such Honorary Member continues to possess the qualifications as an Honorary Member and, if not, such Honorary Member shall be removed as an Honorary Member.

 

E. Distinguished Member: The Board of Directors may each year, by a 66 2/3% majority, elect to the status of Distinguished Member not more than five (5) Active Members who, because of their long standing, dedication and service to the Los Angeles Rod and Reel Club, possess the qualifications deemed sufficient to warrant such action. Further qualifications for Distinguished Member status are twenty (20) years of active membership and service at one time as an Officer and/or Director of the club and /or trustee of the Foundation.

 

H. Non-Resident Member: This classification of membership shall be available to anglers who reside outside the  State of California. A Non-Resident Member shall have all the privileges of the Club, except the right to vote or hold office. The initiation fee and dues for Non-Resident Member shall be 50% of the active member rate.

 

I.  Life Member: The Board of Directors may each year, by a 66 2/3% majority, elect to the status of Life Member, a Distinguished Member who has accrued 30 years of continuous membership. This is the most prestigious honor that a member may achieve. A Life Member will not be required to pay dues. A Life Member is a de facto Active Member.

 

SECTION 3. Active Members shall have the privilege of voting and holding office. Only Active Members shall have all rights, title, or interest in the assets of the corporation. Membership and any right arising there from shall be nontransferable, and all rights of a member in the corporation or in its assets shall cease upon death or other termination of membership.

 

SECTION 4. As a condition precedent to membership, it is necessary for a prospective member to attend at least two of any of the following events prior to being accepted as a member:

 

1. Regular dinner meetings

2. Annual awards event   

3. Annual Kids' Fishing Trip

4. Marine Mentors’ Trip

5. Kids’ Trout Derby

6. Family Picnic


Or any other event the board of directors deems appropriate as a condition set forth in this section.

 

This qualification shall not apply to “Non-Resident” members applications.

 

In addition, a prospective member’s application shall be signed by at least one active member sponsor(s) who have fished with the prospective member and certify by their signing that the prospective member is an angler in sympathy with the objectives and values of the Club.

 
A new member will pay no regular dues for the calendar year in which the application is approved by the board of directors.  If the board of directors approves a new member's application in the 4th quarter, the new member will not be required to pay dues for the following calendar year. In subsequent years, the new member will be required to pay dues at the then prevailing amount approved by the board of directors. This provision applies to both Active and Non Resident members.

 

For purposes of the pre-admittance the requirements of an Active Membership as set forth in this Section 4, may be met by any member of the household over 18 years of age

 

At such time as the Club is in receipt of an application from an applicant that has met all criteria for membership as provided for in this Section 4, such applicant’s name shall be circulated to the general membership in the Club’s newsletter or by any other means of circulation approved by the Board of Directors. Not less than ten (10) days after such circulation, the application of such applicant shall be submitted to the Board of Directors for approval or disapproval. The vote of not less than seventy-five percent (75%) of the Members of the Board in attendance at the meeting of the Board of Directors shall be required for approval of such applicant to become a member of the Club.

 

SECTION 5. If a member’s renewal form and dues payment have not been received by December 31 preceding the year of renewal, then the member may, upon board action, be placed on pending status for a period of up to one year and shall not appear in the roster for the following year.  Pending status shall mean that for up to one year following the applicable December 31 renewal deadline, the pending member is eligible for reinstatement without any further action upon receipt by the Board of the member’s renewal payment and renewal form.

 

The membership of any person who is a pending member for any consecutive one-year period shall expire at the end of such one-year-period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a member who has failed to renew by the December 31 deadline, may not be placed on pending status if at least one board member shall state that he has personal knowledge of that member’s intention not to renew membership. In such case that membership shall expire as of December 31 of that calendar year.

LOS ANGELES ROD AND REEL CLUB

FISHING RULES

 

The following rules, revised as of January 1, 2014, apply to catches of fish made after that date when entered intra-club competition (among our own members) for trophies, prizes, or other awards. Whenever this Club participates with other clubs in any tournaments, our members will be required to follow the particular rules governing such inter-club tournaments, even though they may conflict with these rules.

 

SECTION 1. Regular trophies and special awards may be awarded for catches in saltwater, fresh waters, or fly fishing.

 

SECTION 2. Fishing areas The term "fresh waters" is defined as lakes, rivers, and streams. As a further clarification, all species of salmon, except Coho, and those caught in landlocked bodies of water, shall be deemed caught in ocean waters. Steelhead shall be classified as "fresh water". The Board of Directors shall make the final determination in the event a particular catch requires clarification.

 

SECTION 3. All species of fish recognized by the International Game Fish Association at the time of the catch are eligible for trophies and/or other awards in each line test category specified in

Section 12. A.1. In order to be eligible for a trophy and/or award, a calico bass must be released.

 

SECTION 4. Any fish caught in a sportsmanlike manner,(casting, jigging, trolling, or taken from shore) by means of live bait, dead bait, or artificial lures, is eligible to compete with any other catches in comparable line class.

 

SECTION 5. To qualify any fish for a trophy, certificate, or award, the following is required:

 

A. Fish to be weighed on a scale deemed reasonably accurate. All weighed fish should be witnessed and certified by another person. However, if the angler is fishing alone and wishes to submit the fish for a record and release the fish alive, a reasonable effort must be made to locate another person to witness the weight of the fish and sign the certificate certifying the weight. If after a reasonable effort, no person is found to weigh the fish, the angler may self-certify the weight by declaring so and signing the weight slip indicating no other person was present and the weight is self-certified.

 

B. A properly verified weight certificate must be mailed to the Fishing Records Chair and postmarked within fourteen(14) days of return to port. All catches evidenced by weight certificates mailed beyond the time herein stated will be automatically disallowed, unless the member submits to the Board of Directors for its action, the weight certificate and a written explanation for the delay, and the Board resolves to accept such weight certificate. No deviation from this rule is otherwise permitted. The decision of the Board shall be final.

 

C. Any protest relative to the weight of a fish or to the manner of weighing must be made before the fish is removed from the weighing station (i.e. boat or landing).

 

D. In case of a tie in weights of fish, the first fish taken, if that fact can be determined without dispute, shall be considered the winner. Otherwise, the first fish officially weighed shall be deemed the winner, and, if that fact cannot be determined without dispute, the controversy shall be resolved by the Board of Directors.

 

E. Any fish taken on a particular date within a season, irrespective of the date such fish may be weighed in, shall be entered for competition in the same season. The term "season" as herein used means from January 1st to and including December 31st.

 

F. All fish released but not weighed may be entered for a "Release Trophy" but will not compete in line test categories. Fish may be entered for trophies and/or

Club records if released, provided said fish is weighed in accordance with the rules herein prior to release.

 

SECTION 6. In order to qualify a fish in competition as a "released" fish for any special award which may be presented, the following is required:

 

A. At the time of release, either the hook must be held by hand while being purposely disengaged from the fish, or the leader must be deliberately broken or cut at a point enabling the angler to retain a portion of the leader, and the angler must have sufficient control and domination of the fish to be capable of boating the fish, should the angler choose to do so.

 

B. The angler must file with the Fishing Records Chair, within the same period as in Rule 5.B., above, a weight certificate marked "Released" (in lieu of weight), certified by the angler, and verified by an eyewitness to the catch.

 

SECTION 7. When an angler enters in competition more than one fish of the same species for the same class of tackle which would otherwise entitle the angler to more than one trophy, only one regular trophy will be presented; namely, the trophy for the largest of such fish. In other words, an angler may not be awarded a trophy for a first and second place for the same species of fishing the same line category.

 

SECTION 8. Separate trophies will be awarded to ladies and juniors. Any Junior Member sixteen (16) years or older may elect to have their weight certificates, trophy and record submissions entered in the adult category; once this election is made it may not be reversed. The Junior Member may make this election in writing to the chairman of the Fishing Records Committee.

 

 

SECTION 9. First place trophies may be awarded in all categories.

 

SECTION 10. Trophies for other outstanding catches will be awarded as determined by the Board of Directors.

 

SECTION 11. A special trophy for the first local game fish of the year will be awarded, exclusive of minimum weight and line test. For the purpose of this special trophy, "local" is defined as being limited to ocean waters available to anglers departing from any port from Morro Bay south to the Mexican border, where the duration of the trip does not exceed 24 hours. The qualifying species are albacore, tuna, dorado, yellowtail, white seabass, marlin, and broadbill.

 

SECTION 12. The angler must land or release the fish only by the use of sporting tackle.

 

A. Line

 

1. Monofilament, multi-filament, lead core multi-filament, and spectra lines may be used in each respective class, in accordance with the maker's labeled rating in pounds or weight class.

 

2. Wire lines are prohibited.

 

B. Line backing

 

1. Backing not attached to the fishing line is permissible with no restrictions as to size or material.

 

2. If the fishing line is attached to the backing, the catch shall be classified under the top thirty (30) yards of the two lines.

 

SECTION 13. Any protest relative to a catch or release may be made by any member in good standing. For a protest to be valid, it must be in writing, clearly stating the reasons for the protest, and be in the possession of the Club’s President no later than the later of fifteen (15) days after the disputed catch, fifteen days after return to port, or within fifteen days after the person entering the protest becomes aware of the information upon which the protest is made, whichever is later, but in no event later than ninety days (90) after the disputed catch. The President shall notify the angler that a protest has been lodged, and set a hearing at a regulated scheduled Board of Directors meeting. The angler and the person(s)protesting shall have the right, but not the obligation, to attend the hearing. The Board of Directors, after hearing all the facts pertaining to the protest, shall make a determination, by majority vote of those in attendance, of the validity of the catch. The Board of Directors decision shall be final. In addition to the above, the Board of Directors shall have the unlimited authority to act on its own to resolve any matter involving the interpretation of the Club rules, trophies, and records.

 

SECTION 14. The Board of Directors shall have the right, from time to time, to change, delete, or add to any of the above rules, as may be deemed to be for the best interest of sport fishing and the members of the Club. Each of the records contained in the LARRC fishing records(following these fishing rules) shall remain a permanent record of the Club until such time as record is broken.
 
 

RULES FOR FLY-FISHING

Equipment Regulations

 

SECTION 1. LINE

Any type of fly line and backing may be used. The breaking strength of the fly line and backing are not restricted.

 

SECTION 2. LEADER

Leaders must conform to generally accepted fly-fishing customs. A leader includes a class tippet and, optionally, a shock tippet. A butt or taper section between the fly line and the class tippet shall also be considered part of the leader and there are no limits on its length, material, or strength. A class tippet must be made of nonmetallic material and either attached directly to the fly or to the shock tippet if one is used. The class tippet must be at least 15 inches(38.10 cm) long (measured inside connecting knots).With respect to knotless, tapered leaders, the terminal 15 inches (38.10 cm) long (measured inside the connecting knots) will also determine tippet class. There is no maximum length limitation. The breaking strength determines the class of the tippet.

 

A shock tippet, not to exceed 12 inches (30.48 cm) in length, may be added to the class tippet and tied to the lure. It can be made of any type of material, and there is no limit on its breaking strength. The shock tippet is measured from the eye of the hook to the single strand of class tippet and includes any knots used to connect the shock tippet to the class tippet. In the case of a tandem hook fly, the shock tippet shall be measured from the eye of the leading hook.

 

SECTION 3. ROD

Regardless of material used or number of sections, rods must conform to generally accepted fly-fishing customs and practices. A rod shall not measure less than 6 feet(1.82 meters) in overall length. Any rod that gives the angler an unsporting advantage will be disqualified. Extension butts are limited to 6 inches (15.24 cm).

 

SECTION 4. REEL

The reel must be designed expressly for fly-fishing. There are no restrictions on gear ratio or type of drag employed except where the angler would gain an unfair advantage. Electric or electronically operated reels are prohibited.

 

SECTION 5. HOOKS

A conventional fly may be dressed on a single or double hook or two single hooks in tandem. The second hook in any tandem fly must not extend beyond the wing material. The eyes of the hooks shall be no farther than 6 inches (15.24 cm) apart. Treble hooks are prohibited.

 

 

SECTION 6. LURES

The lure must be a recognized type of artificial fly, which includes streamer, buck tail, tube fly, wet fly, dry fly, nymph, popper, and bug. The use of any other type of lure or natural or preserved bait, either singularly or attached to the fly, is expressly prohibited. The fact that a lure can be cast with a fly rod is not evidence in itself that it fits the definition of a fly. The use of any lure designed to entangle or foul-hook a fish is prohibited.

 

SECTION 7. GAFFS & NETS

The use of a flying gaff is not permitted. Only a single hook is permitted on any gaff. Harpoon or lance attachments are prohibited.

 

 

Fly-Fishing Regulations

 

SECTION 1. The angler must cast, hook, fight, and bring the fish to gaff or net unaided by any other person. No other person may touch any part of the tackle during the playing of the fish or give aid other than taking the leader for gaffing or netting purposes.

 

SECTION 2. Casting and retrieving must be carried out in accordance with normal customs and generally accepted practices. The major criterion in casting is that the weight of the line must carry the lure rather than the weight of the lure carrying the line. Trolling a lure behind a moving water craft is not permitted. The craft must be completely out of gear both at the time the fly is presented to the fish and during the retrieve.

 

SECTION 3. Once a fish is hooked, the tackle may not be altered in any way, with the exception of adding an extension butt.

 

SECTION 4. Fish must be hooked on the lure in use. If a small fish takes the lure and a larger fish swallows the smaller fish, the catch will be disallowed.

 

SECTION 5. One or more people may assist in gaffing or netting the fish.

 

SECTION 6. The angling and equipment regulations shall apply until the fish is weighed.

 

SECTION 7. Acts disqualifying a catch.

 

A. Failure to comply with equipment or angling regulations.

 

B. The act of persons other than the angler in touching any part of the rod, reel, or line either bodily or with any device during the playing of the fish, or in giving any aid other than that allowed in the rules and regulations. If an obstacle to the passage of the line through the rod guides has to be removed from the line, then the obstacle shall be held and cut free. Under no circumstances should the line be held or touched by anyone other than the angler during this process.

 

C. Resting the rod on any part of the boat, or on any other object while playing the fish.

 

D. Hand lining or using a hand line or rope attached in any manner to the angler's line or leader for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.

 

E. Intentionally foul-hooking or snagging a fish.

 

F. Shooting, harpooning, or lancing any fish (including sharks and halibut) at any stage of the catch.

 

G. Chumming with the flesh, blood, skin, or any part of mammals.

 

H. Using a boat or device to beach or drive a fish into shallow water in order to deprive the fish of its normal ability to swim.

 

I. Attaching the angler's line or leader to part of a boat or other object for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.

 

J. If a fish escapes before gaffing or netting and is recaptured by any method other than as outlined in the angling rules.

 

SECTION 8. The following situations will disqualify a catch:

 

A. When a rod breaks while the fish is being played and the break results in the rod's length being below minimum dimensions or severely impairs its angling characteristics.

 

B. When a fish is hooked or entangled on more than one line.

 

C. Mutilation of the fish, prior to landing or boating the catch, caused by sharks, other fish, mammals, or propellers that remove or penetrate the flesh. Injuries caused by leader or line, scratches, old healed scars or regeneration deformities are not considered to be disqualifying injuries. Any mutilation of the fish must be shown in a photograph and fully explained in a separate report accompanying the record application.

1.0 Purpose

 

The purpose of the Los Angeles Rod and Reel Club Fishing Records Hall of Fame is to honor long standing and/or exceptional fishing records that in the mind of the Board of Directors represent a significant and noteworthy angling achievement difficult to duplicate and deserving of high praise and the honor and prestige of being inducted into the Fishing Records Hall of Fame. 

 

2.0 Eligibility

 

A. Saltwater- Pacific Ocean species caught in waters adjacent to the West coast of the United States including Alaska, West Coast of Canada, and the entire both coasts of the Baja peninsula out to Hurricane Bank and down to the Clipperton Atoll.  Saltwater fish caught in any other location may be eligible for Hall of Fame consideration under special circumstances as defined in 2.0 Section D below.

 

B. Freshwater -Fresh water species caught from any freshwater location in the United States, Canada or Mexico in states or provinces that have the Pacific Ocean or Sea of Cortez as one of their borders. Freshwater fish caught in any other location may be eligible for Hall of Fame consideration under special circumstances as defined in 2.0 Section D below.

 

C. Time Required -A club fishing record must be in place for 10 continuous years to be considered for entry into the Hall of Fame.

 

D. Special Circumstances - An individual fishing record may be nominated by a board member for consideration for entry into the Hall of Fame, without waiting for the above mentioned 10 years, or, caught outside of the eligible waters defined in 2.0 sections A and B, if in the opinion of the board member, the record represents an extraordinary angling accomplishment above and beyond normal angling circumstances.

 

3.0 Procedure

 

A. Hall of Fame Ballot -Each November the President shall prepare a ballot listing the time eligible and special circumstances fishing records.  A board member desiring to nominate a special circumstance fishing record must notify the president of such before November 1st of each year.


B.  Distribution of Ballot -The president will distribute the Hall of Fame ballots to the Board of Directors at the November board meeting. There will be 11 ballots including the president.  The president, as a board member will be eligible to vote in the Fishing Record Hall of Fame elections.  If a board member is not present at the November meeting, the president will electronically transmit the ballot to the absent Director(s).  Directors will have a maximum of two weeks to complete the ballot and return them to the president. The president may make exceptions to this timing as required to accommodate an individual circumstance.  An unreturned ballot will be considered a no vote for all of the eligible records.  The president will announce the results at the December board meeting.

 

C.  Requirements for Election to Hall of Fame -In order to be elected to the Fishing Records Hall of Fame, the following requirements apply:

 

1. Fishing Records Held for 10 Continuous Years

 

a. Meet the standard of being a significant and noteworthy angling achievement difficult to duplicate and deserving of high praise and the honor and prestige of being inducted into the Fishing Records Hall of Fame. 

b. Fish weight to line strength ratio must be at least 1:1.  The 1:1 ratio requirement does not preclude consideration for otherwise qualifying fish as a Special Circumstances Fishing Record.

 

c. Receiving a YES vote on at least 7 ballots

 

d. If a fishing record in this category is not elected to the Hall of Fame, the record will not be carried forward on future ballots unless nominated by a Board member.  In such circumstances, these fishing records will be considered special circumstances and the rules thereof will apply.

 

2.  Special Circumstances Fishing Records
