  5. I'm so sorry you can't get in. Perhaps our tech guru Willem (Willem (JD)) can be of assistance.

  13. FFF 2020 Competitive Categories and Prizes Registration for FFF 2020 opened on Sunday, December 1, 2020! Here is a peek at FFF 2020 contest categories and prizes: Who are the winners and what are the prizes? In 2020 we are placing more emphasis on recognition (worldwide and state-by-state). This year's contest will be for "bragging rights," recognition on CAG sites and publications, and worldwide and state-wide certificates of achievement. Participation in CAG's First Fishing Folly (FFF) has always been free to CAG members. We are going to give our generous prize donors and the CAG coffers a break this year, meaning that there will be no monetary or bait/tackle prizes. Having organized this activity for seven years now, I've always noticed anglers' sentiments that this really isn't about a few bucks or a few boilies anyway. It's about pride, carp angling, and doing something a little different on New Years Day! However, I will put together some downloadable, frameable certificates of achievement for winners that will be posted on an FFF 2020 forum thread for download. A sample from FFF 2019 follows (Click for a larger image): Competitive categories Both the successful angler and the captured fish must be pictured in each photo/entry you submit for carp catching awards. The photo must include the angler's face. If you are fishing alone, you’ll need long arms for a “selfie” or a camera with a timer. Don't forget - the angler must be indentifiable in the photo. We prefer that the photo include your camera's date and time stamp, but it is not required. We trust your honor. 1. The FFF First Carp Award: First carp of 2019! The time to be recorded is the local time at which the fish is safely in the net. The required picture of the angler holding the fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the First Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the First Three Anglers in each State/Province 2. The FFF Monster Award: Biggest carp caught during the FFF. The required picture of the angler holding the fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Three Anglers in each State/Province 3. The FFF Baby Award: Smallest carp caught during the FFF. The required picture of the angler holding the fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Three Anglers in each State/Province. 4. The FFF Emperor Persistence Award: Total number of carp caught by the angler. This is a quantity category. Winners will be those catching the most carp during January 1, 2020. The required picture of the angler holding each fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Three Anglers in each State/Province. 5. The FFF Big Sack Total Weight Award: Total weight of carp caught by the angler. This is a quantity category. Winners will be those catching the highest total weight of carp during January 1, 2020. The required picture of the angler holding each fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Three Anglers in each State/Province. 6. The FFF Scubadoc Mirror Award: Biggest mirror (or leather) carp caught during the FFF (in honor of Dr. Neil Stern). The required picture of the angler holding the fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers worldwide. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Three Anglers in each State/Province. 7. The FFF Sunrise Award goes to every FFF 2020 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. Anyone submitting a sunrise picture earns an FFF 2020 Sunrise downloadable, frameable certificate. After all, you have to be out at sunrise with camera and carp gear for a photo (no small feat in itself). We will create a separate thread for submission of sunrise photos. 8. The FFF Hall of Fame Award: All FFF 2020 participants catching a carp prior to 6:00 a.m. (local time) will be given recognition and awarded a certificate of FFF 2020 achievement. The required picture of the angler holding the fish plus accompanying data (time, weight, angler’s name, state in which capture was made) must be submitted. 9. The FFF 2020 Jerome Adventure Tale Award. Many of you have submitted interesting FFF summaries with accompanying photos in the past. In honor of Jerome Moisand's quick wit, photography skills, way with words, and dedication to CAG and FFF, we are, again, including a prize category for the best written summaries with photographs of your 2020 FFF adventure. Those will be judged by myself and others designated closer to the time of the competition. Recognition/Certificate will be awarded to the Top Ten Anglers/Writers/Photographers worldwide. 10. All submissions must be posted on the designated CAG forum thread by 1:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday, January 3, 2020. An angler may not win more than one award per category. In other words, you may catch the first, second, and third heaviest carp, but you will win only the first place prize. However, you are eligible for both worldwide and state-by-state awards in the same categories. Also keep in mind that you can win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in multiple prize categories. I hope to have awards announced and certificates available for download by Tuesday, January 7, 2020. Good luck! You must register by 11:59 p.m. (your local time) on December 31, 2019. Registering much earlier than that, like right now, is always appreciated. There is no fee for this event, but you must be a CAG member to participate. Thanks. Good luck!—Dr. Frank Rink Click here for FFF 2020 Registration Click here for FFF 2020 Detailed Rules
