I submit that mar71's post is ineligible due to animal cruelty concerns.

This is a weak and pathetic attempt to influence the impartial judge of this event.

My only criticism of Mar71's story is that if he'd managed to hold onto the goose we could all be eating fois gras right now while sipping an icy glass of Pouilly Fume.

In any event, the judging is at 11:00PM so get your stories in!

And the Winner IS:

Mar71 and the attack goose, both for best story and picture.

2nd goes to Tick Magnet, for his wild fish and honest and credible C&R story.

PM me your addresses, guys, and I'll send out some flies.

The Rusty Hook award goes to Glen. While his story had merit his shameless attempts to discredit his fellow competitors, malign the judge and steal a fellow fly fisher's picture brought him down to his proper level. He gets this and is lucky to get it:

This is a travesty. I suggest we allow the moderators to review this obviously rigged process. My story had everything, fish, sex, humor, and you vote for the dead goose? I'm done.

Nice try Mike, but I hope winning this contest is worth having your secret ponds disclosed. Of course, the "judge" could always prevent that from happening by reconsidering....and don't give me that "we don't negotiate with terrorists crap".

GPS coordinates being posted by 10:00 am Tuesday unless decision is overturned. Is the loss of a brook trout fishery worth a few flies?

Ok, sorry. Here's the secret spot: 44°18'21.6"N 73°58'40.5"W

I will keep posting secret spots until the "decider" fixes this injustice.

Dave-Your pond is next to be posted unless you exercise some influence on you know who.

All,

I'm very concerned. Glen will only escalate as time goes on. His first 'outed' secret pond was of course Lake Placid. This is a huge blow to all of us, for it is certainly the Brookie epicenter of North America. And he just won't stop until every water body in the Adirondacks is named.

I cannot continue to subject all of you to the risk Glen poses. You could well make a midnight trip to the bathroom only to discover someone's Blackjack in your tub and a fisher trolling back and forth for the Splake Glen told him would be there.

Therefore, tomorrow morning I will ship Glen a suitable peace offering. Complete capitulation is our only defense against this unfolding catastrophe.
