  1. Hi Anthony,

    Some very nice fish but unfortunately they do not qualify for the Spring BIG 4 2022.

    You have to be signed up for the event in advance of the start (March 15th 2022) and follow the rules for captures to qualify (photo must include scales, logo and fish care requirements).

    Be sure to look out for the Fall Big 4 event and hope to see you sign up then. 

    All the best, Iain

  2. Here is the Obituary that was posted in a local newspaper.

    William “Bill” Warder, 80, passed away Monday, July 12, 2021, at St. Luke’s Northland Hospital. Bill was born April 20, 1941, in Independence, MO to Robert Lee and Lucille Jeanette (Ward) Warder. Bill was a graduate of the William Crisman High School in Independence. He was owner/operator of Air Freight Central located at the Kansas City International Airport for over 30 years, until his retirement. For many years, Bill was an active member of the Weston, MO community, and will be fondly remembered as an enthusiastic umpire by the local ball players and fans. He was a member of the Weston Masonic Lodge #53 A.F. & A.M. and was an avid fisherman and golfer. Bill was preceded in death by his parents; and his first wife Phyllis (Reeves) Warder. He is survived by his current wife Natalyia Valentinovna Denisova; his children Kristie Reese of Phoenix, AZ, Brooke (Eric) Mosier of Weston, Meghan (Dave) Lowry of Fernandina Beach, FL, Jay (Tracie) Warder of Maryville, MO, and Elizabeth Warder of K.C., MO; grandchildren G.

    Hello you people, joining you from U.K. Does anyone know what’s happened to phone/phone bush?

    I know this thread is old but I enjoyed his chatter on our forum, he was unwell a while ago but nearly a year has passed since ‘seen’ thanks.

    Sadly Phone passed away last year. We are running an obituary in the next issue of the NACA magazine.

  11. 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.'”

    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!

    Does anyone know when the prizes will be distributed? In the past it was only like a few days and points were updated in my BCT account. I haven’t seen or heard anything yet. 

    Amy just waiting for Zach at BCT to get accounts updated. Hopefully won't be long. I'll be getting Regional awards sorted after Jan 1st as any photo orders at this time can be tough over the holidays.
