    Default Local comp rules

    Hi. I arrange a small fly fishing comp with a few colleagues. The rules are pretty standard. No trolling, cast in front of boat, max 4 hook points etc. On the day of the comp the lake was well stocked. The stockies started to play ball in the afternoon. So I caught a fish on top dropper and whilst unhooking in the net another one took my boobie on the point whilst still in the water. I managed to land both. The very same thing happened to a mate. I allowed both double ups count towards end total. What's your thoughts. Oh and it didn't affect the results in either case.

    Totally legit! In a comp these are the best ways to catch, they're a good bonus. Others are when you're having a pee, pouring a coffee or when reeling in.
    Take them any way you can��.

    Technically I think you are supposed to be holding the rod when you get a take to qualify

    Would you allow a fish hooked in the a*se to count?

    The fish was hooked in the mouth so I would say it's a legitimate catch.

    It's a simple question. You permitted two fish caught by handlining which in effect is what it was. I'm just exploring the limit of what you are prepared to allow.

    I don't see the problem with netting both fish. Net fish on top dropper and cut the fly off then net fish on point fly. Either tip first fish out of net into boat or leave it in the net. The chance of it swimming out are slim.

    Thanks Bob. Since foul hooking has never been an occurrence I am not sure what I would do. Would welcome opinions on that too.
