Past rules used to state, no foul hooked fish, gaffed only in the head, or netted. At some time the rules were changed. As far as I am concerned, it should be changed back to those rules.
The idea of a derby is the skill of a fisherman to entice a fish to bite his or her lure, bait etc. Not to snag a fish when they pool up in the creek mouth. You can contact Russell Thomas at Clover Pass (he is a member of the derby committee) if you wish to either approve or disapprove of this practice.
