The IGFA’s Slam & Trophy Clubs recognize outstanding angling achievements through the Trophy Fish Clubs, Grand Slam Clubs, and Royal Slam Clubs.
All catches, past and present, can be submitted for IGFA’s Slam & Trophy Fish Clubs provided that all of the necessary documentation can be provided and the catch was made in accordance with IGFA’s International Angling Rules. The IGFA encourages all fish in these clubs be released alive whenever possible.
Members of the Slam & Trophy Fish Clubs receive a custom, hand-signed, embossed certificate depicting their achievement, and are permanently listed online and in the IGFA's World Record Game Fishes book.

UPDATE - Fly Versus Conventionally Caught Slams
IGFA Differentiates Slams caught on fly versus conventional tackle
The IGFA recently began differentiating those Slam & Trophy Clubs caught on fly tackle versus those caught on conventional gear. The new applications require the angler to state the gear they used to achieve their slams. In order to receive distinction for a Grand or Royal Slam caught on fly tackle, all of the species must have been caught on fly tackle according to IGFA rules. Those Slam & Trophy Fish caught on fly tackle will be indicated as such in the World Record Game Fishes book going forward.
Have you submitted a Slam or Trophy Club application in the past that was caught on fly tackle, and want to be recognized? No problem. Simply contact IGFA’s World Records Coordinator, Jack Vitek, at email@example.com or 954-924-4246.
