The original spirit of this contest was to challenge someone to catch a salmon in the NE United States... where such an event would warrant a decent prize. But since I was so vague in the details (probably enjoying a Macallan at the time) it technically includes New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, etc...

Therefore, as long as entrants are signed up in FlyTalk before the fish is caught, and all other criteria is met (grilse, et. al.) - then by all means! Everyone in the North Atlantic, both sides - is in the running.

Thanks for your interest and good luck Mr.Gunn!
