Holy Carp! Fly Tournament
WHEN AND WHERE
Captain's meeting will be May 19th, 2017, from 6-8PM at Bayou City Angler Fly Shop. We will discuss rules and regulations and hand out everyone's shirts and the secret item required in the photos to enter your fish.
Tournament will begin May 20th, 2017 at daylight. Fish photos must be turned in by 4:30pm at Bayou City Angler. I'll be at the shop early for those who cant make the Captain's meeting. You must have a valid fishing license to participate in this tournament.
The following three carp species may be submitted: Common, Grass, and Smallmouth Buffalo. The winners will be based on the total length of all submitted carp; you may submit as many carp as you can catch! The top three will place for prizes. Photograph submissions are required. Each photo must include a legal measuring device and the secret item which will be distributed at the Captain's Meeting the night before the tournament. Judges will determine the legitimacy of photos and measurements.
Where To Fish
You can fish anywhere in Texas as long as you're back at the "Weigh-In" Location by 4:30PM on the date of the tournament. Exact locations for carp will not be given out as it is up to the competitors to find the fish.
Where Not TO Fish
DO NOT fish anywhere that fishing is prohibited - you will be immediately disqualified. NO trespassing, snagging, flossing, chumming, or scented baits (this includes the coffee bean fly). No private water submissions will be accepted. DO NOT cheat! This is fly fishing, it's supposed to be fun!
