Gaz... that's the way I remember it from being a miserably failed matchman many years ago :)

On a completely separate note would I be right in thinking that continental rules were (are?) slightly different in that points are also awarded per fish regardless of its size in addition to points for overall weight... I think it was an attempt to make things fairer and avoid the late lucky bonus fish (or even hard worked for bonus fish maybe?) from sweeping the board?

I wonder if it would work over here and how it would be governed, on a self declared "honesty box" basis maybe... ?

No good for people like me though who's three gonks would be declared as a hundred and twenty three stamp roach with a couple of quid thrown in for the scalesman (who insists on working alone) :D
