    This month's fishing competition will run from July 14th through 21st. The requested fish for this month is the Fairy Salmon. Fairy Salmon are caught in Ter Mur. It is reported to have been caught by fishermen as low as Adept level (85 skill). The prizes for this competition will depend on the size of the fish you can catch. The biggest fish will win you five thousand gold per stone of weight of the fish. The second place fish will win you three thousand gold per stone of weight. Third place will win two thousand gold per stone of weight. An additional million gold check will be awarded to any of the top three fish that are over two hundred stones in weight. All fish must be caught during the week between the 14th and 21st at 6 pm eastern. Winners will be announced at 8 pm on the 21st at the docks in Trinsic. Fish you have caught for the competition may be turned in at the city herald in Trinsic, to the governor or one of his representatives. Please note that the herald is fairly weak so if it won't accept your fish it may be full and you may have to try again later. Multiple fish may be turned in, but only the largest of your catch will be considered for the largest fish prize. Fish will be returned upon request of the fisherman, after prizes have been awarded. The top fish, if not returned, will be made into a trophy and displayed at the Bayside Stadium in Olympus. Any other unclaimed fish are subject to being made into steaks and/or pies and sold for the funding of future events.

    In addition to the largest fish prizes we will also be awarding prizes for the fishers that catch fish that match the weight of the biggest and smallest of the ten fish that are caught by my independent fisher. As well as the fisher that comes closest, without going over, of the average weight of all entries.
    (Note: I am usually in game or online between the hours of 4 pm and 10 pm eastern. Ask for me in the RP Community Chat, PM me here, or icq me at #270755567 to arrange delivery of your fish)

    Just a reminder that this ends today at 6 pm. If you haven't already turned in your catch I should be available after 330. Anything turned in to the Herald after 6 won't count.

    The results for this month's fishing tournament are...
    1st place Adrian Monk at 192 stones
    2nd place Leucosia at 186 stones
    3rd place Thalia at 171 stones

    The average weight of entries was 74 stones and Adrian Monk also pulled in our closest without going over at 73 stones.
    The independent fisher's largest fish was 154 stones, which was not matched by any of our entries... but the smallest catch of 20 stones was matched by 9 fish, each of which won a check for 20k.

    We look forward to seeing all of our fishers back again next month as well as a few new faces.

    Sorry I missed the end of this but all my bragging was for naught anyway.. Too much going on in RL and I spent too much time playing on Test ... never did get down to some serious fishing..

    Congrats to Adrian and the other winners!
