Best non fish-centric photo

Like a sunset? :-)

 

 

The gods do not subtract the alotted span in men's lives the hours spent in fishing.

Could be a sunset, yeah

But the spirit of the award is the photo which best represents the June contest or Roughfish in general.  Now, that very well could be a great photo of a sunset.  For all of these photo awards we will be letting the community vote on them.

Best overall fish

This will be voted on by the field as well, and could mean different things to different people.  Possible best fish from my perspective - 

 

  • A rare catch (e.g. pallid sturgeon, blue sucker)
  • A huge fish
  • Tough new hard-earned lifelister
  • An odd fish (e.g. melanistic gar)

Prize rod will go to top finisher

After much debate and input from the Roughfish community, the prize rod will be given to the top finisher like in years past.
