  5. It is with huge shock and sadness that we just learned Colin Peters from Ogdensburg, NY passed away suddenly at the weekend. Colin was an exceptional angler as well as a friend and mentor to so many. He was State Chair for NY - North, ran the St Lawrence Invitational and Carp Marathon tournaments and was a key supporter of the St Lawrence Junior International Carp Tournament. He will be missed by so many of us in the carp fishing world here. Rest in peace Colin.
  6. By a unanimous vote of the BOD, Derek Williams has been voted WV State Chair. Thank you, Derek, for volunteering for this position and good luck.

  10. Hi any chance I can download the Boilie calculator please thanks


  11. Very sad indeed, phone was certainly a unique character, I think he enjoyed carp fishing banter, probably more than carp fishing. His sense of humour was classic, the world will be a duller place without him. RIP Phonebush

    Welcome to the latest edition of the North American Carp Angler Magazine!
  14. Sorry to hear that. Always enjoyed time on the bank with him. RIP Herk. This is a photo from the CT Tourney in 2016.
  15. Thank you for letting us know and sharing your memories. His struggles with PTSD and his last words in the article are truly special. Farewell Herk. “I'm too old to try to fulfill my dreams, so I try to help other people fulfill theirs,” he said. “Then you have a sense of worth. Once you do that, you can leave this world and say, 'Hey, I've helped a lot of people. I'm not as bad as I make myself out to be.'”
  16. On the heels of losing Phonebush over the summer, another veteran carper passed away recently. Herk, as many knew him by, was not only a veteran carp fisherman, but a veteran in service to his country being in the U.S.Marine Corps. Raymond Corcoran | 1946 - 2021 | Obituary Raymond Corcoran December 21, 1946 - November 15, 2021 Raymond "Herky" Corcoran, 74 of Fredericktown, PA passed away Monday, November 15, 2021. He leaves behind his children Kelly, Tracy, and Sean, his grandchildren Doug, Brendan, Maddie, and Danielle, as well as his brothers Dan & Tim and his sister Pam. He will be rejoining his wife Peggy, his brother Tom, and his sister Pat in heaven. An avid fisherman and hunter his entire life, he was his most relaxed self, with a line in the water. He managed 84 lakes for several years, becoming a well-known name with so many fishermen. He was also a Vietnam Veteran who served from 1964-1967 in the U.S. Marine Corps. Our hearts are broken, but full of love and great memories of him. He will be deeply missed by so many lives that he touched, but there is comfort knowing he is at peace. Friends will be received Tuesday, November 23, 2021 from 3 to 7 PM in the Greenlee’s Fredericktown Funeral Home, Ltd., 42 Bank St. at Crawford Rd. Fredericktown, PA. Interment will be private. Online guestbook and personal condolences may be accessed at www.GreenleeFuneralHome.com. I've spent a good bit of time going back and reading some of Herk's old posts here on the forum since his passing. Whether it was his time managing a PA Paylake for several years(and fishing them for many more years), organizing wild water tournaments with MojorLeagueCarp, or later on fishing some of the wildwater carp tourneys, and just carp fishing in general, many have benefited from fishing with and knowing Herk and were helped out by him in some way. I was fortunate enough to get to know Herk fairly well during his time as a CAG member. I always enjoyed the time I got to spend bankside with him........ The above pics were from an W. PA carpin' get-together back in 2007. Here is a good article about what Herk was up to in his later years: https://observer-reporter.com/news/localnews/fredericktown-veteran-lives-with-ptsd/article_5b03fb87-845a-5cbc-a144-d707ce669ae3.html The living legend may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.........

    In 2013 I sat down with my good mate Frank Warwick for a chat. We talked about his, so far, only visit to fish in the USA but more importantly his approaches to finding and catching carp. I hope you enjoy this fascinating discussion and some of the pearls of wisdom that always come from chatting to Frank!

  19. Monty Mittleman aka Cartooncarp was CAG's resident artist for many years. He created some amazing artwork for event awards and t-shirts. If anyone has some examples they could copy or photograph and post them here it would be much appreciated!
  20. Ha ha, unless memory fails, the Zebco 33, Uglystick, and #4 snelled hook was what Phone used and recommended for starters and finishers alike. Just a quirk I remembered, although what he is probably known for worldwide is his White Paper. He had me adding brewer's yeast to boilies for the chitin for awhile.
  21. It went something like… he was struggling for a poster name when the phone in front of him and the bush outside the window supplied the answer. Here’s a classic from AnglersNet… Hi all (again) Oldtimers will remember me as Phonebush. I got booted from my usual haunt on CAG (USA forum) from member status to guest status. Not much a "guest" can do on CAG so I thought I'd "catch up" on your side of the pond. Usually pay my CAG dues at an event but haven't been able to go to a single one this year. To old to start messing with money transfers on the internet. It's like electricty - don't trust what you can't see. Anyway, I'll stumble around a bit and not doubt "say something" as I use shoepolish with toothpaste in it. Serves two purposes when I have my foot in my mouth. Phone Posted July 24, 2011
  22. One must start somewhere. My wife wishes, after looking at my carp gear, that I was still starting! Many thanks for the photos and the kind words about Phone. Curious, anyone know how he got his "name?"
  23. Thanks for all the responses. I was sad to see that Neil Stern had passed as well. Here's a memory test.. I remember that Jerome posted the first underwater video of feeding carp I ever saw, but was it Louis who purchased a live common in a grocery store and released it into the wild? I think it might have been Miguel who offered to take dodgy teenager Oddball fishing because he lived with his grandmother and had no transport. There's karma for that.
