I guess it would be very picky to point out that a buffalo is NOT a carp??? Isn't that like weighing in a catfish in a bass tournament.

Maybe a name change is in order to "Rough Fish on the Fly Tournament."

A Gasper Gou isn't a carp, either... But they count!

Come to think of it, a Red Horse counts, too.

- Common Carp
- Buffalo Carp
- Red Horse
- Drum

We trash fishermen don't get too hung up on the details. \:\) Most of us can't read anyway.

I perused your Alaska blog. Looks like a ball! Welcome home.

I'm not exactly sure about the whole board yet, but the results should be in a newsletter coming soon. The big banquet is this Thursday so I'll definitely know then. I will report when I get the exact list.

I was going to enter last minute and fish the last weekend in July to at least get on the board, but I got diagnosed with swine flu the week before. No joke. I didn't get out of bed for four days straight. I just couldn't catch a break this year.

I will be gunning for you next year though, Gil.

Edit - by the way, Jack, you got ROBBED in the "ugliest" category! That fish of yours is the ugliest carp I have ever seen in my whole entire life.

I was wondering where you were in all this... Thought maybe you were sandbagging this year. Sorry you were ailing.

And you're right. Never fails. I'm doomed to never win anything or get any decent prizes from this thing. It's a plot, really. ;\)

Dayum, man! R U serious? You're the first I've heard of to get the pig virus. Hope you're okay. If you had been well this year, you would have kicked my fanny. You really ought to come to the banquet tomorrow night anyway, maybe give them $10 to eat and enjoy the party. I haven't been able to go in years because I'm usually on vacation, so I'm pumped to be able to make it.

Jack always gets robbed. He's still ticked because he thinks his screensaver is the prettiest carp ever, and he didn't win anything for it.
