2nd Annual Enchanted Circle Trout Unlimited Fishing Tournament

April 12-13

Each time will be scored on a point system;
                *10 points for every trout up to 13 inches.
                *25 points for every trout 13-17 inches. 
                *50 points for every trout longer than 17 inches.
                *Rio Grande Cutthroat trout are worth an additional 25 points

There will be a set time to begin and end fishing.  Teams must not fish before, or after, these times.
Only 2 team members are allowed to fish at the same time.  The 3rd and 4th (guide) team members will be allowed to net, measure and record their teammates fish.  

Teammates will rotate their non fishing member at least every hour.   The guide will be allowed to fish for his team twice a day for a duration of no longer than 15 minutes at a time (30 minutes total, per day.  15 minute guide ‘sessions’ must be at least one hour apart).

There is no restrictions on tackle, other than it is a fly fishing only tournament, and all fish must be released. 
There will be prizes for biggest fish and smallest fish.  To be eligible, the fish must be photographed next to a measuring device.  In the event of a tie, a vote will determine the larger-or smaller-fish, based on girth.
If there is a tie for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place teams, the tie break will consist of a casting competition.
