  6. I’m delighted to announce that the BOD has approved Vince Shiflet's application to the position of State Chair in Ohio. He was the State Chair of Ohio in 2010 for a few years until Craig Welsh took over the position. Since Craig has stepped down Vince has agreed to once again take up the position. Vince is looking to continue the monthly fish-ins that run from April to October. He will also welcome members new and old to the yearly social gathering in February where plans are laid for the fish-Ins, raffles are held and everyone can learn and improve their techniques. Thanks again to Vince for stepping forward and our thanks also to Craig for his past efforts and continued membership of CAG.
  7. I am delighted to announce that Barry Howard is our new Membership Director. Barry is already in charge of running the CAG store and his taking on this additional responsibility is very much appreciated.
  8. CAG Member Renewals Update. It appears that recent changes with PayPal have resulted in some members not seeing a 'Renew' button in membership section. If you are are having an issue in renewing your membership please send Willem a PM and he will get it fixed.

  15. Top right where it says "unread content"
  16. Thanks for the feedback and something that we've looked at very carefully. The cost of printing extra pages plus the added weight for mailing costs limits the number of adverts. The on-line version gives us much more flexibility to add pages at a nominal cost and with greater visibility for advertisers.
  17. Got mine in CT... From experience it can take a while for bulk mail to be delivered.
  18. Nice cover... plus the contents are top notch! Well done Dean, Sal and everyone who contributed.
  19. Top quality Saxon T-shirts on sale... ideal back drop for those PB camera shots! Available in L, XL, XXL & XXXL Only $12 each plus $2.50 postage to lower 48. Paypal accepted. Please PM to place your order.

  21. Please feel free to use the attached letter as is or as a template for your own... but more importantly please get one sent ASAP! Janet Otto-Cassada Mayor The Village of Waddington, NY 13694 June 15, 2015 Dear Mayor, B-I-G Fish = B-I-G Business Trophy fish of any species will attract anglers from far & wide. This means more license & tackle sales as well as travel, food and accommodation expenditure coming into the economy of the region. It is therefore vital to help educate more anglers toward the positive benefits of careful handling and the live release of trophy fish of ALL species. This includes the catch and release of trophy common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are increasingly sought after by top anglers visiting the St Lawrence river. The presence of big trophy carp indicates a healthy environment that will also support trophy fish of other species. The killing of large carp (as well as native buffalo, muskie and gar) only serves to stimulate the rapid increase in smaller fish which can lead to negative impacts on the aquatic environment. You cannot ‘un-kill’ a fish. The concept of catch & release, especially for trophy fish, is a win-win for everyone. When a trophy fish is killed anglers know that it is no longer there to be caught. But when a trophy fish is released it stands out as a beacon of hope for other anglers to come test their skills and maybe catch it at an even heavier weight. The economic benefits that result from the ‘catch & release’ of trophy carp as well as other species will be a significant boost for the local community. I wholeheartedly support the catch & release of trophy fish while allowing anglers to retain a limited number of smaller fish for the table. Thank-you, Insert your name & address Please note: Common carp are now considered a naturalized species in many states. They should not to be confused with the so called Asian or ‘jumping’ silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) that are making the headlines as an invasive species. C&R Letter Mayor.doc
  22. Getting it done is as important as getting the right message delivered. Since this has gone public on Facebook etc i'm sure there will also be counter letters from parties who do not share the C&R view point.
  23. Agreed - My letter proposal is aimed at the 'catch & release' of all trophy fish (not just carp).
  24. I have submitted a proposal to the CAG BOD for a letter that could be signed by members and others. As soon as we have something for ciriculation I will post it.
