Grand Slam Clubs

The IGFA’s Grand Slam Clubs honor the outstanding accomplishment of catching a collection of different game fish species within a single day. A “Grand Slam” is defined by an individual angler catching at least three of the eligible species within a category (shown below), per IGFA International Angling Rules. All catches must be made within one calendar day, and all past and present catches are eligible, provided they are properly documented.

 The following designations apply to IGFA Slam Clubs:
  • Three species in a day = Grand Slam
  • Four species in a day = Super Grand Slam
  • Five species in a day = Fantasy Slam

The IGFA differentiates Slam & Trophy Clubs caught on fly tackle versus those caught on conventional gear. To be eligible for a fly tackle Slam, all of the species must be caught on fly tackle according to IGFA Rules. Fly and conventional tackle Slam Club members are displayed in the World Record Game Fishes book each year. 

How to Apply: 
  • Download the application
  • Fill out the application in its entirety and have it notarized by an authorized agency or individual.
  • Submit completed application and photos of the catches to: 

The IGFA
c/o World Records Coordinator
300 Gulf Stream Way, Third Floor
Dania, FL 33004

For catches made before 2012, witness information is sufficient.

The IGFA prefers photos of the angler with the fish; however, for conservation purposes, we accept photos of just the fish if adequate witness information is provided. Be sure to take and submit high-quality images, as we may feature your Grandl Slam in an issue of the International Angler.
