  1. Neil was truly one of those rare characters who made life so much better for everyone who knew him. He worked tirelessly in making the ATC a truly great event & helped so many newcomers get into carp fishing. Neil was renowned for boundless energy and generosity. We are hugely grateful for everything Neil did for CAG over many, many years, including his time as CAG Membership Director. On behalf of all our members we extend our condolences to Neil's family.
  2. CAG Membership Drive For over 26 years the Carp Anglers Group (CAG) has been dedicated to introducing anglers in North America to the excitement of catch & release carp fishing as well as the protection of trophy carp. Strength in Numbers: One of the critical factors toward ensuring the protection of trophy carp (especially from indiscriminate bow fishing and unregulated or illegal movement of fish) is the continued growth of our membership base.

  7. CAG Monthly Photographic Competition ‘The Essence of Carp Fishing in North America’ CAG members are invited to submit photographs that capture what is unique and exciting about carp fishing in North America. Each month the winner will receive a special prize plus recognition for two runners up. The photos do not have to be of someone holding a fish (this is NOT a Trophy fish competition) but they should be recognizable as being related to carp or buffalo fishing in North America and should reflect the capture of a special moment. The ‘essence’ of carp fishing in North America might memorialize a remarkable scale pattern, someone’s first carp, a group of friends fishing together, a spectacular sunset, time of year or perhaps a dramatic background or landscape. The judges will be fellow members who should pay particular attention to the subject matter and composition and not just the photographic or editing skills. In the event of a tie or any disputes the CAG BOD will be the final arbitrator. Each month we’ll announce a winner and Award a prize or voucher (worth $100) with the winning photo appearing in a forthcoming NACA magazine as well as the CAG Forum Site and Facebook page. The top 3 will also receive CAG Medals. The Rules: The entrant must be a Full CAG Member & the owner of any copyright to the photograph. An entrant may submit a maximum of TWO photos only in each month. The photograph must have been taken in the submission month (final date for submissions is 24 hours after the end of each month) All fish photos must demonstrate appropriate carp care and catch & release Each submission must include the following details: 1. The type of device (e.g. camera or phone) used. 2. The date the photo was taken. 3. Location (nearest Town and State). 4. Your Name Entries should be submitted to the “CAG Essence of Carping Competition” under the appropriate "Month" below. Entrants agree that CAG may use or display a submitted photo on the CAG website and Social Media resources.

  11. Dovetail Games is a long time supporter of CAG. If you enjoy gaming or need to test your fishing skills away from the water then check out their new fishing game! Coming Summer 2020 is The Catch: Carp & Coarse - a species hunting fishing game from Dovetail Games, about the passion and pursuit of what lurks beneath the waters. Take on the hunt of a lifetime as you target and pursue monster sized fish around the world. With 35 species to hunt you’ll have to work up your strategy, skill and tactics to catch every boss fish in each venue. It’ll take both patience and adrenaline to succeed as you choose your angling spot carefully based on time of day, weather conditions and perfect equipment setup, before casting out into the water to battle and catch these elusive creatures. ‘There is no better feeling in fishing than catching the legendary beast of the lake and that is what we’ve replicated in this game. We have taken carp and coarse fishing to the next level - so it’s all about the catch!’ said Darren Potter, Executive Producer for the game. It’s time to go fishing somewhere new! Feel the thrill as your line tightens and the bend in the rod tells you that you’ve hooked a monster. Go hunt for the fish of a lifetime in The Catch: Carp & Coarse. www.thecatchgame.com Key features include: GO SPECIES HUNTING 35 different species of realistically captured fish with their own unique behaviour and bait preferences await you. Every tactic and piece of equipment will be needed to catch them all as you go from float fishing for species such as rudd, ide and bream to using lures for trout, salmon and pike. You can also fish for rare species such as pacu, mekong and redtail catfish. LAND THE BOSS FISH There are 125 legendary Boss Fish for you to catch including 11 Monster Boss Fish – the hardest fish to catch in the game. These named fish put up a huge fight and only the best will be able to locate and land them all. WORLD DESTINATIONS Featuring 5 unique destinations that all present their own challenges. Oxlease Lake on the Linear Fisheries complex is a specimen carp water with some great back up species including tench and roach. The River Ebro is home to huge wels catfish and Pearl Lake in Malaysia features exotic monsters such as arapaima and giant wolf fish. Go urban street fishing in Rotterdam city centre or explore the openness of Loch Mickle in Scotland that both contain predators such as pike and zander. ADVANCED WATER FLOW Advanced water flow will affect your fishing whether that’s from the bank or in a boat. Keep an eye on your float drifting downstream or your boat moving off the prime spot that you have identified.

  12. There is evidence that carp will eat, chew & vent tiger nuts & other particles and then come back and repeat the process on the previously chewed remains. This makes sense as carp have no stomach to hold and digest food in the same way as other fish so repeatedly eating the same food suggests this might maximize the amount of nutrients that can be extracted. Carp can also crunch up molluscs such as zebra mussels with relative ease so soaked but un-boilied corn should be no issue.
