2014 Utah Fly Fishing Contest
Time to start the second Utah Fly Fishing Contest. Due to state law we can only have 49 people enter for this type of contest. Registration starts today May 1st and will close on June 1st 2014 or earlier if full. Please be on time. Contest starts MAY 1ST 2014. Contest will end OCTOBER 1ST 2014. Winners will be announced by October 15th. Entry Fee is due within 3 weeks of registering in the contest.

1. There will be an entry fee this year. The entry fee will be in the form of a single fly. It can be a 50 cent fly, a hand tied fly, your favorite fly, etc.

If you have chosen to donate an item to the contest you will not need to send in a fly for the entry fee payment. After you have registered (see post below) I will send you a PM with instructions on how and where to send them.

2. Only entries of fish caught on a fly rod, fly reel, and
flies will be considered as entries. No "fly and bubbles", lures, jigs, etc. (you should be able to find your flies in the fly section of your fish shop.)

3. Absolutely no baits or scents allowed.

4. Must be a registered member of BFT to enter.

5. Points will be awarded by the half inch.

6. Fish Boards will be allowed this year. You must have a picture with the fish on the ground next to the tape with the contest word. It can be on a piece if paper or the sand but IT MUST BE CLEARLY WRITTEN!
If the fish is caught on a pontoon or float tube you may use your apron to hold the fish but the apron must be straight. As for the measuring process your measuring tape must be straight with no kinks.
The contest word must be clearly visible on a piece of paper (which can be inside a plastic bag if needed.)

The Contest word is "PMD".

7. Pictures of fish in the air next to a tape will not count. All pictures must be taken at the lake or river.

8. Picture should be taken from end of ruler, ruler laid on the ground under/next to fish. Need to be able to see both ends of the tape.

9. Check that your camera’s date is set, photos will be judged as current based on their “creation date” in the file information.

10. Points will be awarded for up to six fish.

11. Only 1 fish entry may be a non-game/non-sport fish.

12. One fish must come from the following list. (Black Crappie, Yellow Perch, Bluegill/Green Sunfish pictures (grouped together), White Bass)

13. Two Fish must be a trout species.

14. Catfish entries will not be accepted this year.

15. The other 3 fish may be any native or non-native sportfish (no catfish entries will be accepted).

16. Utah public waters only. Reciprocal lakes count as Utah waters.

17. Rivers must be in Utah only and fish cannot be caught on Private Sections of any river.

18. You must post your own fish for it to get credit.
I can help anyone who has problems resizing or posting their photos. Please post your photos in JPEG format. Please do not post large pictures inline. If you want to post some to “tell your story” downsize, but a large entry photo helps confirm accuracy and measure (zoom). Please watch the glare – I need to read the numbers.

19. Posts must include species (common name) of fish, date caught, and length of fish.

20. You do not need to post the name of the lake from where you caught the fish.

21. Anyone harassing another contestant for posting the name of a lake will be disqualified.

22. Anyone found cheating will be disqualified.

Check back for more prizes to come.

Entries should be posted within 2 weeks of the catch.

Entries can be upgraded.
For Example: If you catch a larger Perch but have one posted already no problem. Post the new perch and your points will be adjusted. You don't get points for both fish but the larger one will be the one counted.

Please check your pictures of fish on the lake if you can. If it's moved and doesn't show the full length of the fish, I'm sorry but I go with what shows up in the picture. Points are based on the photos. No limit on size of photos this year but please don't abuse this. If anyone has reason to contest a photo or entry, please do so via PM to me, do not challenge an entry on the open forum. If you notice any errors of questions about my tracking – again – shoot me a pm.

New Rule: Photos need to be posted to BFT - not links to another site. Photos must include the contest word and a clear shot of the ruler to be counted. Take extra pictures to be sure of getting one that shows clear evidence of your catch and the contest word "PMD"!
