No, just one in each species.* If you submit one that qualifies for each, you would get an angler award for each...
But picture this, wouldnt you rather be out there alone, catch one of any, no one around to take a picture, no scale to weigh it with, on hand, nothing to really measure it with and just look at it and say to yourself, that is SO WORTH a master angler award, and just either put it back in the water or take it home and eat it?* Fond memories they are.
Dont get caught up in that.* They have a similar program up in Canada, which i could have many, many patches and things laying around to brag about by now.* But those are my memories, and some nice fish in my belly, and memories that will be with me forever.
P.s..* Okay, I do have some pics, but I never sent em in for some patch.* Thats not why I do it myself..
Pss. I have officially qualified for only Bluegill, perch and Rainbow this year in the state of Colorado. Unfortuantely nothing else. I have personally seen Kirbydog qualify with a Smallmouth bass, and possibly a largemouth, I will go look at the stains in my boat and confirm upon request. But the Smally was a given. That guy knows his bass from I have seen, but I dont hang around him much, he may have gotten better ones this year.
