      Looks like a great event, thanks for posting! I did have a quick question on the rules as stated on the FB page.

      "NO pellet immitations, no beige, brown, cream, or faded orange egg flies, etc. ANY use of aforementioned flies will result in blank for your entire session"

      So no egg flies? How about mops? Basically, what does the etc. entail? Thanks

        Rules

        The rule has been clarified as no egg flies or pellet imitations at all. This is per venue request.
        Mop flies are allowed.
