yes Chris you send 2 of the same fly in each category


"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

@Christopher

 

As riffleriversteelheadslayer has already replied, you send in 2 same (equally tied) flies in each category. You can participate in one or in all 4 categories.

 

Cheers,

L.
