  11. Here is the ICFA-USA press release announcing Mihai Aciu's awesome capture in Austin. Mihai has submitted the first-ever record which is eligible for entry at the end of the year in the ICFA's official records. Congratulations, Mihai - groundbreaking for the United States to be recognized in the global carp angling community this way. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mihai Aciu of Chicago, one of America’s leading carp anglers, has recorded a 39 lb. 14 oz. Texas carp with the International Carp Fishing Association – USA. The Romania-native captured the common carp on Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin in late March. 2011 is the inaugural year for keeping American records for the Europe-based ICFA, and the Texas record is the first for ICFA-USA. The International Carp Fishing Association is headquartered in London, England and is under the direction of well-known British carp angler Rob Hughes. Hughes founded ICFA in 2004 with a trusted like-thinking group of world-class carp anglers from across the globe. That assemblage of anglers formed the association’s executive representatives which includes Oklahoman David Moore who represents the United States. The not-for-profit organization’s mission is to support and promote catch-and-release fishing for the common carp around the world. In an effort to expand ICFA’s world-wide record keeping for the common carp beyond Europe, ICFA-USA was created. ICFA-USA will submit American records for each State to the ICFA’s centralized official records at the end of each year. “Having our first U.S. official ICFA record on the books is tremendously significant for carp fishing in America”, says David Moore. “While carp fishing around the world is considered a primary outdoor sport, we’ve known the American carp angling scene has plenty of potential. Now that we’ll have American anglers credited for their accomplishments in a global arena, a new door has opened. We’re thrilled that Mihai Aciu is the first to step through that door and make him eligible for global recognition.” “Mihai is a skilled angler who is well-respected among his peers. He fishes competitively around the U.S. and has won several big-money tournaments with his fishing partner Bogdan Bucur. The pair will be competing in the elite Carp Angling World Championship on the St. Lawrence River in September.” About ICFA-USA and detailed American records can be viewed on the ICFA-USA website www.internationalcarpfishingassociation.com # # # The International Carp Fishing Association (ICFA) is a Europe-based organization comprised of dedicated carp anglers who support and promote carp angling on a global basis. Carp fishing is one of the most popular disciplines of freshwater angling in the world. ICFA’s mission is to protect and support the sport for the future.
  12. We've had a request from an experienced competitive angler from Wales who is living in the U.S. and is looking for a partner for the CAWC. If you'd like to be connected, please send us a PM.

Brits Tim Paisley and Steve Briggs are returning to America for the CAWC to defend their title as reigning world champions on the St. Lawrence River. The pair representing Angling Publications had an amazing win back in 2005 capturing a grand total of 80 carp at 1,590 pounds. It was Briggs’ first trip to the St. Lawrence making his first time in the USA a charm. Paisley, the well-known publisher of CarpWorld and other major UK carp angling magazines has been back to the St. Lawrence many times since the competition in 2005 to fish the big waters.
