2012 fantasy pike fly challenge

This will also be a strict catch & release affair!

Rules

Players pick 4 flies for the season


12 flies to choose from
(Found in the left sidebar)
6 tubes
6 hooked
6 substitute flies (3 x tubes & 3 x hooked)

5 flies will be tied for each specific fly design, and will be used through out the season. Once each fly becomes unusable to fish with, it will be replaced with a new one until all five are finished.
Flies will be regularily photographed to show their condition throughout the Fantasy league challenge.

Points tally
Points will be tallied up at the end of each week and added to the league table in the sidebar so players can see where they are standing

1 point will be given for each fish caught
2 extra points will be awarded for a fish over 75cm (2,46 ft)
4 extra points will be awarded for a fish over 85cm (2,78 ft)
6 extra points will be awarded for a fish over 1 meter (3,28 ft)

I will alternate between using tube flies one days and hooked flies the next and each fly will be changed after each fish caught which will even out the playing field so to say!

Substitutions
1. Substitutions will be submitted as and when I feel the need
to
change the playing field. for example certain flies will perform better during different times of the year.
2. 3 x substitutions will take place throughout the course of
the season.
3. Each player gets to choose one tube and one hooked fly
they
would like to change. The flies that get the most vote
for that
specific substitution period get used!

Play offs!
1. On the 30th September all the points will be tallied up and
the top 10 players will go into the October play offs which
will end on the 31st October.

2. All the flies will be brought back into play for each of the
ten players.

3. Players can then choose to either keep the
ones they have or change to other models during the play
offs.

All entrants need to be submitted by the latest 15th May.

Okay, so the first points have been tallied up after 10 days. Water temps have been unseasonably cold 4'c - 6'c due to three weeks of Northerly winds blowing pushing the warmer water back towards Sweden. This has meant the pike have started spawning a lot later than the last couple of years here. I have had 3 blanks during the 10 days and missed 2 days due to being off the island. Blanks means that I dont carry on with the same set of flies so I missed 2 days with hooks due to a blank and a tube day. Largest pike of 97cm went to the Blue/white Pulse. Anyway check out to see how your progessing in the league table.
