Default Games to play while fishing

Hello everyone,

I am in the process of planning a trip to the green for a group of buddies this summer and would like to set up some games or contests to play to have a little fun.

Aside from most fish caught, longest fish, etc do you have any other ideas that might make things interesting?

Thanks,
Rob

of course when you go anywhere with the guys you have to see who can pick up the hottest chick.

A one fly contest is good with a bunch of people. Let every one pick one fly and they fish with that fly only. If it breaks off or they want to switch flies then they are out of the contest but they keep fishing.

Smallest fish caught is always a fun one. Might wanna set a limit for smallest size fly though. Most species caught could be another.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

The first person to catch a fish, gets or buys the beers. A dollar for the biggest fish caught. A dollar for the most fish.

I like Frank's game. I don't know if I would put myself in that position if I was fishing a new river on limited time. I think I'd rather catch fish then play games.

You should try this, it would be very challenging since the grand total of single girls out of high school in Dutch John is currently zero. There is a bar about 60 miles away in Rock Springs though. If you come in the summer see who can catch a fish on the biggest dry fly. I caught fish on cicadas on a size 2/O. It's pretty fun to see fish try to eat a small bird.
