Thumbs up 2010 Fall Brookie Contest

2010 FFINH Fall Brookie Contest





Ladies and Gentlemen! I present the 2010 Fall Brook Trout Photo Contest.

The requirement for entry is that you are a member of FFINH as of today, August 28th 2010 and that your fish is caught in a New England state. You may submit photos for family members, ie. kids. Your photo will be judged on "Fall Beauty" by our fellow members. The photos should display fall colors on the trout, and background will be considered. That being said, if your trout is C&R, do not gill the fish or mishandle for a great shot at the expense of the trout. If the fish is destined for the table anyways, a quick note stating that will help. A short description of the photo will also help members in their voting. Members have mentioned donating flies towards this contest. If any others are willing to donate flies, PM myself and we can coordinate that. I don't tie, but will donate a "prize" to the contest to be announced at a later date. Please submit all photos to this thread by October 31st, 11:59PM. I will then place all Photos in a NEW thread to be voted on by members. Winners will be announced November 15th!

I think I understand. We post to this thread as we go. Is that correct?

This will be fun!

Thanks for a great fall project!

Ok this one is a little on the small side, and this is not me. This is just a photo that I Love and could only dream of a brookie like this on a fly!!

Maybe someone can find one like this in New England this year!! Great example of a brookie in true fall colors..

OK, I'm assuming that that last one by Bushbuck doesn't count, or we all might as well go home!

A few nitpicky questions: Does the fish have to be caught THIS fall (from today forward) - as opposed to an old picture that gets dredged up? Do we stipulate that the fish has to be caught by someone on this board (obviously family members are included), not just "some guy holding a fish"? Does the fish have to be caught IN New Hampshire (for all you Rangely guys)?

This is a great idea - can only hope I can come up with a picture worthy of entry!
