London Specimen Hunters Group

The London Specimen Hunters Club was one of the earliest specimen hunting groups founded by Peter Butler in 1954.


The Angling Heritage archive contains a few letters between Peter Butler of the LSHG and Charles Kirkham of the Bucks Specimen Hunters group. This was in 1965 and also included letters about forming what turned out to be the National Association of Specimen Groups (NASG) of which both groups became founder members. There are also about 30 photographs donated by Peter Butler of the members and some of their impressive catches of fish from roach to crucian carp.



we would welcome more information as always, but you are welcome to view the archive by contacting us through the website.
