FFF 2019 - Post All FFF 2019 Sunrise Photo Entries here

Recommended Posts

This “FFF 2019 - Post All FFF 2019 Sunrise Photos here” thread is where you will post all of your photos of FFF 2019 sunrises.

post-8343-0-08175200-1451699219_thumb.jp

The FFF Sunrise Award goes to every FFF 2019 registrant who submits a photograph of the first sunrise of the year. The primary intention of this category is to share some fabulous January 1 photos with fellow CAG anglers. In fact, if it’s too foggy, cloudy, snowy, or rainy, you can still take a picture at the approximate time of sunrise. The picture may or may not include a fish, but it should include at least some kind of indication that you are fishing (water, rod, pod, net, etc.). Anyone submitting a sunrise picture earns an FFF 2019 Sunrise certificate. 

_____________________________

1. You must be a CAG member registered for FFF 2019 to submit a photo.

2.  All who submit a photo on this thread will receive a special FFF 2019 Sunrise certificate for download shortly after the conclusion of the event.

3. Weather on January 1 is not always conducive to a clear sunrise picture. If you can't see the sun, you may take a picture at the approximate time of sunrise and still be eligible for the Sunrise award.

4.  The sunrise photo has to include some evidence that you are fishing (water, a fish, a rod, a pod, a reel, an angler, etc.). You are welcome, however, to also include fish, people, food, pods, vehicles, buildings, bridges, etc.

5. The best way to post a photo is to drag it to the the bottom of each posting window or to choose a file as indicated at the bottom of each posting window.

If you are having problems with the photo posting options, I will take your photo and caption information via e-mail and post the photo for you.  However, you should know how to post photos on the forum, so please don’t abuse this option. E-mail me at fjrink@comcast.net or pm me at FJR1.  I'll need your e-mailed entries at least two hours before the January 4 deadline to allow me to process and post the pictures by the posting deadline: 1:00 p.m. EST, Noon CST, 11:00 a.m. MST, 10:00 a.m. PST.

7. Please type within each photo’s post the following caption information: 
A. Your name (first and last). 
B. The state/province where the photo was taken.
C. The venue or city where the photo was taken (This is optional if you want to maintain some secrecy about your venue.).

Thank you. We look forward to some great sunrise and snowcap/sandcarp shots

FFF 2019 is over!  CAG’s FFF 2020 will be held on Wednesday, January 1, 2020!  I hope you will consider participating.

Thanks to the Carp Anglers Group (CAG) for funding the prizes, to Linear Bait Co. and Brian Wisnowski for a generous discount to CAG for Linear Bait Co. vouchers/prizes, to Jerome Moisand for helping judge the “Jerome Adventure Tale” category, and to Iain Sorrell for prize solicitation, for helping judge the “Jerome Adventure Tale” category, and for his continual support and leadership as CAG president!

Biggest thanks to the 83 anglers who registered for the event and to the 22 anglers who submitted entries.  You captured 106 carp weighing in excess of 900 pounds.  Not bad for the conditions that many of you faced on 1/1/19!

I have sent messages, either through the CAG Forum Message system or through CAG’s Facebook Messages, to the prize winners. 

Those messages include your voucher code if you were a CAG Store voucher winner and/or a request for your email address if you were a Linear Bait Co. voucher winner (so your voucher can be coded and finalized).  If you are a Linear Bait Co. voucher winner, please respond to me with your email address by Wednesday, January 9, 2019.  Thank you!

It was an enjoyable event for me in the planning, execution, and participation (even though I blanked this year), and in seeing some incredible catches, stories, and photos.  Thanks to all involved and congratulations to the winners!  Tight lines in 2019!

Coordinator of FFF 2019, FFF 2018, FFF 2017, FFF 2016, FFF 2015, FFF 2014
