Rules

Starting tomorrow February 19 2005, and extending through midnight June 20 2005, catch as many different types of fish as you are able.

The size of the fish is irrelevant; rulers and scales are not necessary. Given the nature of the suject matter of Roughfish.com, only freshwater or anadromous fish will be allowed. The greatest variety of fish caught will win the Grand Prize.

Post a picture here on your Roughfish.com species list for this contest. Someplace in the picture must be a slip of paper with the words "Roughfish.com" and the date. A 3 x 5 card or something similar would work great. No slip of paper or no date, and your picture won't count towards your total. An electronic date "stamped" on the picture by your camera will not count. It must be on the slip of paper.

Any fish that cannot be identified from the photo will not count. Be sure to get a clear photo. For bullheads, be sure to have the barbels visible so we can tell what color they are!

All pictures must be uploaded to your life list by June 23 2005. Final judging and awarding of the Grand Prize will occur on June 24 2005.

Any legal method of catching the fish will be allowed, but it must be on hook and line only. You must catch the fish yourself, although someone else may net or gaff the fish for you. You may kill or release the fish as your conscience and the law allow. No snagging, spearing, gigging, or hippo-gunning of fish is allowed.

Grand Prize will be one new karma-filled fishing cap, one box of Twinkies, a pack of hooks, and our warmest personal regards. You will also get a super-nifty blue-ribbon icon on the roughfish.com message board.
