  2. 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.'”

  3. Frank Warwick Interview

    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!



  4. 2021 CAG Membership Drive and Member Appreciation Draw - with over $1500 in prizes!

    For over 28 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. Simply put - The more members we have the greater our presence, influence and representation we can have to ensure better appreciation for carp and carp fishing with state fishery organizations. 

    Every $ Counts! CAG is a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers. Every cent of your membership fee goes toward supporting the CAG mission and better outcomes for our favorite sport fish.

    We need you! Now is the time to step up and join CAG. It costs only $25 for new members (which includes a New Member Pack) and then just $20 a year for renewals.  We now have almost 4,900 people on the CAG Facebook page so we know there are plenty of potential members! 

    Please Note: If your CAG Membership has expired or you are a CAG Forum Guest please Log-In with your existing User Name and Password to renew your membership. Please do not create another account.

    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.

    I miss Horace (and his dog Max, gone to Carphound Heaven by now), I miss Phone, and I miss seeing the pictures of monster fish Scott the Big Carphuna posted.   There were lots of wonderful people whose names I can't remember.  Oddball and Kyle Kypka would be middle-aged now.  Does anyone remember how they fought over Bush v Kerry in 2004 before either of them were old enough to vote?

    I would always like to see more folk on the CAG Forum (which is now exclusive to members only) but many over the years, like Horace, are now on Facebook or Instgram.

    CAG has its own Facebook page with over 4,800 members https://www.facebook.com/groups/carpanglersgroup plus as you say there are also many other locally focused or  specialist groups that effectively compete with the CAG forum. Much has changed from the original CAG Compuserve days.

    There is still some good dialogue in the members only area as well as the Big 4 posts etc but it would be great to see more!

    The membership package was tempting at one time, but it was scaled back about the same time parts of the forum became exclusive. 

    What do you think changed in the membership package? We've always included some basic tackle for beginners, a printed magazine, stickers etc.

    Who is our Draw Official ? Do anglers need to be traveling together to qualify for fishing adjacent swims ? 

    6. If two anglers, as a result of travelling together or a requirement for extra assistance, need to fish adjacent pegs then they must notify the Draw Official no later than the evening BEFORE the peg draw.

    Get in touch with Barry Howard.

    Amy. Where do I find the logo to print

    The logo will be available for printing or downloading late on the evening of Sept 30th. See Rule #8

    8.     The Fall Big 4 2021 logo will be available for download in a separate thread just before the start of the Competition (just before midnight on September 30th). 

  10. This is how your Big 4 Capture Post should look!

    *** Please note the photo clearly shows the Big 4 Logo (which will be posted just before the competition starts) and scales used to weight the fish positioned in the FOREGROUND of the picture. The fish is also being held over a mat and square to the camera (i.e. not at angle or from above or below the level of the fish). The anglers face is also clearly visible. ***
