Rules for the catch-and-release tournament are simple: anglers are allowed to bring two barb-less hook flies of any combination or patterns. Once the flies are lost or unusable, he or she is out. Anglers must fish with a partner and each must record the total number of fish caught, the length of each fish, and the cumulative number of inches. Only fish handled by the angler and successfully released will count as caught fish. The winner is determined by the highest cumulative length of each fish caught. 

Each fisherman can choose just two flies to user per day. They must pick their flies they will use at the beginning of the day. If the lose them, they are done. Official rules are sent with registration confirmations.
