This year the Conclave will include an “Identify the Stream” contest to test and reward attendees’ ability to recognize New Mexico fishing waters. Photos of approximately ten streams, identified only by a number, will be posted around the Sandia Prep Commons area during the Conclave.
Each photo will be of a stream in New Mexico on public land or on land accessible to the public without charge. The stream will be known to harbor fish targeted by fly anglers. The photos will include enough of the surroundings to give contestants a reasonable, but not necessarily easy, chance to identify the stream segment.
Entry sheets will be provided that ask contestants to list the stream and the particular reach for each photo. Points will be awarded for correctly naming the stream and the particular segment pictured. One entry per person. No entry fee. Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries.
