  5. Champion of the Queen Award 2019 recipient - Dean Brookes Since its inception back in 1993, the Carp Anglers Group “Champion of the Queen” award (sometimes referred as “Protector of the Queen” award) has been used to acknowledge exceptional achievements in promoting CAG and carp angling in North America. It is named after the description given by Sir Izaak Walton to the carp in his book the ‘Compleat Angler’ first published in 1653 “The Carp is the Queen of Rivers: a stately, good and very subtle fish”. The Champion of the Queen is nominated by the CAG President and Vice-President and voted on by the CAG Directors. It is commemorated by an engraved presentation piece and a lifetime membership to CAG. I’m indebted to Dave Pickering who nominated Dean Brookes, CAG NACA Editor, and I was not only delighted to support Dave’s nomination but that we both Dave & I had the opportunity to present the award to Dean in person on the riverbank. Dean has been the NACA editor in chief since 2014 and has helped transform the NACA online magazines together with the annual printed editions. As well as introducing many top North American based writers Dean has also engaged some of Europe’s carp luminaries to write for the NACA. Dean has also been an engaged and motivated member of the CAG Board and a very well received presenter at the North American Carp Conference. He is also known to be a very fine angler and able catch a fish or three… usually bigger than mine! Congratulations Dean!

  8. You've got that right! I'm already getting cabin fever for the open water. My ice fishing takes the edge off, but I'm definitely more of a fan of the sound of waves, hot sun, and warm breezes.
  9. Looking forward to this event. Come on spring....

    2019 CCC RESULTS

    My guilty conscience caused by the 10 lbs I put on my midriff over the Christmas holidays was chasing me lol... It's proved a bit more stubborn to shift this year! Glad you liked the photos bro... Yeah it was a great time despite the weather conditions and really well run by Chad and crew.
  11. Run? Who was chasing you? Thanks for the photos. "And a good time was had by all."

    2019 CCC RESULTS

    Proudly, I've been thinking recently that because this was the first time the Cup had ever been to the West Coast in it's esteemed 26 year traveling history, that a photo should be taken to signify the occasion. I went for a run around Lake Hollywood with the family over the weekend and couldn't think of a better backdrop than this to take a photo of the 'North American Championship' cup to mark it's location in 2019/20 Thought this would be the idea place to post it. Enjoy.... Hoping my schedule allows me to see you all later this year during the Indiana CCC Best wishes to you and your carping crews for an awesome 2020 on the bank, Wayne

  18. Do you have open water, and can you catch carp this time of year on Long Island?
  19. I came from a match fishing back round. I started "carp fishing" in 2001 2002. Honestly, I do it bc I just kinda got all the gear and was crazy about it. The style comes in handy on certain lakes but I catch more fish with my older method and its less gear. I dont have to haul a lot of crap. My catch rate isn't as great. But these are my new toys that I just got
  20. Yea its tough at first. You have to see the action of the longer bolognese rods. They play the fish way better than our carp rods. so it makes it easier. less prone as well for the hook to come out of the fishes mouth. we used to fish with those 16 ft rods in rivers by my house in italy. Over hanging trees and some swims were very tight. I remember back in 97 when I was young I brought my 6 ft rods to italy. I went to a trout "pay lake" and there was a italian fishing team practicing for the championships. I remember when they saw my rods they started laughing. They dont use 6 footers unless they are bass fishing or using artificial lures like a spinner for trout. But again, all this good tackle, but nowhere to fish. If you guys ever get a chance to fish in europe, its two different worlds. These guys are on a different level. Especially match fishing. Just how they dress, it makes them seem more important. I remember MR.BIG saying the same thing when he went to europe. You can bring whatever flavours you have, pack bait, checking the water temp, following all the rules of a pay laker or euro carper, when you are next to a match fishermen, get ready to have your ANGUS peppered.
  21. Take a ride with me as I talk about a couple places to get carp goodies. If you havent subscribed yet its free to do so and really helps the channel grow and get out there. Thanks for watching
  22. Wow, that's a lot of rod! It must be tough netting a carp with a rod that long when you are by yourself.
  23. Earlier
  24. I have trabucco rods that I purchased in italy. I have 5 of them. Two are for trout. specific for certain european styles. My other three tele's are for float fishing. one is for chub, tench, trout, medium size carp, etc. The other two, especially one in particular, I can catch carp up to 20-30lbs. again I use these for float fishing. They are pretty expensive. when I travel to italy and fish there, everybody uses telescopic rods. I even brought back to the states my dads fishing rods that he used in italy over 30 years ago. Thats wha they use. My trout tele's are 11 ft. My carp and multispecies rods are 16-17 feet long.
