Paul, I noticed you opted not to put the entire rule in your original post, you just put part of it, between 6 1/2 and 8 inches in length! I think you should work on getting the rule changed to be more exact and not so vague. According to the rule as stated, all the fish entered fit the size requirement. The statement of slightly smaller or larger allows for way too much interpretation of the rule. The part of asking you to follow the restrictions as closely as possible is a joke. You don't ASK a competitor to follow the restrictions as closely as possible, you tell them what the restrictions are and if not followed a disqualification will be the result.
