1 - A fish can not be considered caught, and therefore added to the official daily tally, until the angler touches said fish.For you to practice implementation of The Rule, I submit two examples from today's outing. Can you decide which fish I caught and which one got away?
1.1 - Touching of the fish may be performed by any body appendage, it's substitute or direct extension, with the obvious exception of rod and reel.
1.2 - In lieu of touching certain dangerous species, the act of posing for a photograph with said fish shall demonstrate sufficient control to deem fish caught.
1.3 - With verbal agreement made by all interested parties, a special exception to The Rule may be made, thus granting the angler one half of a fish to be scored in the official daily tally.
In other news, today I chased the skunk out of 2010. Wahoo!
