BRANDON HARRISON Agreed, and since the comp is looking good on attendance, I will discuss with the Charity Administrator and see if we can't lock in some solid numbers.
That Big Fish Prize is what I have my eyes on. There are some pigs in the creek so I expect to see low to mid 50's with this group.

BRANDON HARRISON Guys let’s have a no fish period starting
March 15th.
That gives plenty of time to check out the new fish, but still gives a little break.
I will pick beats Friday before the Event if anyone wants to help.
Open to input from any anglers who care to help.

Brandon Finger I would like to put a team in how do I contact you?

BRANDON HARRISON Brandon, the comp is currently full, but you can register as an alternate and we will add in as needed.

BRANDON HARRISON To All,
Beats will be marked Sat 3/9. After getting feedback from anglers I will accept any help or on site opinions on the beats from any team. I'm going to make this as fair as possible. I intend to attempt a FlyComps draw and have a plan to have it witnessed as one draw by multiple team reps. If this fails we will draw from a hat the morning of and work it out. Sessions 1 and 3 will be hard starts.
The Registration fee is due Sat, if you haven't paid by Monday morning I will drop all who haven't paid and repost the event link on facebook. After that we will work on a first pay first served to hold any remaining spots.
If you don't have pay pal you can send a check to me. If that's the case, contact me immediately and I will get you my mailing address and a bit of time for the mail man.
Rules: Some of us have fished competitions for years, and these rules aren't new, but for any new competitors, these rules explain how a competition generally works. Someone can explain any of these Saturday morning.
No minimum fish size, No pellet flys of any kind. Brown and round is a pellet.
We will allow judges to cross the river, but fish must be measured at the bank with the controller on dry ground. This is the only way to be fair as everyone's wading isn't equal and some judges may not feel comfortable.
Fish must be hooked forward of the Gill Plate (This is the judges call so unhook fish in front of your controller).
Single Hook Barbless (articulated streamers are allowed as long as they have 1 hook and he barb is mashed).
Suspension nymphing with any device attached to the leader will not be allowed.
Flies must be 20" (50cm) apart when freely hanging.
Snagging fish will be a immediate disqualification of that fish and may be a disqualification from the comp. The fish is up to the controller, the day will be up to League reps. Don't do it!
No bait, or substance not tied to a hook by means of thread will be allowed. (floatant and sealant are the exceptions to this rule)
Split shot or other added weight is not allowed. (I may make an exception to this rule the morning of, but it will be agreed on by a show of hands.)
All fishing must be done with a fly rod, and fly reel, utilizing fly line.
I think that covers everything we need, I'm basing this on current FIPS Rules with a few exceptions like fly size.....bead size....articulated streamer....

If anyone has questions or comments please make them here.
