Participants are encouraged to "Keep em Wet" when taking photos. Teams must provide their own photographic device.

Competition is open to all.

This is a team tournament. Only 2 people are allowed to fish. This can be 2 anglers (one poling with rod, one on bow) or an angler and the guide. The guide cannot fish if there are already 2 anglers fishing (a 3 person team).
