It is the responsibility of the anglers to report any rule violation(s) to the tournament director if witnessed during an event. This self policing will help maintain a level playing field for all. Remember that proof must be presented in form of picture, video or another team for the tournament director to be able to take action. There can be no grey area whatsoever. If proof cannot be presented then please understand that action will not be taken
