  5. As a teenager I used to build all my own rods. Then it was a matter of available funds but I still have three carp / pike, an Avon float / ledger and a couple of fly rods from way back then. I even take them out and give them a fish from time to time! Good luck with the custom rods.

  7. I have a few copies of Frank Warwick's debut book "Every Bit of Blue" available. A classic book with great stories, in depth discussion on tackle, baits and approaches to waters - which is very relevant to our fishing here in North America. $45 each plus $4.95 S&H in the lower 48 Payment via PayPal to anglingsolutions@gmail.com Please PM me ASAP if you are interested.

  8. Top right where it says "unread content"
  9. 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.
  10. Got mine in CT... From experience it can take a while for bulk mail to be delivered.
  11. Nice cover... plus the contents are top notch! Well done Dean, Sal and everyone who contributed.
  12. 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.
  13. Working fine on my iPhone
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. Agreed - My letter proposal is aimed at the 'catch & release' of all trophy fish (not just carp).
  17. 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.
  18. Agreed - We need to be proactive in this rather than reactive. We also need to be very careful how we promote this as the CAG Facebook page still has several bowhunters on it who could just as easily send many more letters objecting to this proposal.
  19. You can use the following link to calculate non-profit postal rates http://dbcalc.usps.gov/CalculatorSetPage.aspx A 2oz letter x 500 at Standard (i.e. not first class rate) mail cost to 5 digit Zip codes is 26.1 cents each so $130.50 Assume $150 / issue and you'll be close enough to get my vote
  20. There is a whole generation under the age of 40 (plus a few of us who are trying to keep up...) that simply do not do "printed" material any more. One of the reasons we struggle to gain membership is that a whole (next) new generation of carp anglers do not see CAG as relevant when they can access everything on-line without 'paying' for it. I continue to support the newsletter for those who want it but we also need to recognize how much things are changing with media access.

  22. John has just sent quotes through to me. I've asked for a couple of follow questions to the printers for clarification and then hopefully we can make a decision and get this done.
  23. Thanks for the update John - In Bob's absence as VP let's get these quotes reviewed by the BOD ASAP so we can move ahead with a decision on the newsletter.
  24. If anyone is interested in building up their own rods I have some 12' blanks as used in the Saxon hexalite rod range. Available in 2.50, 2.75, 3.00, 3.25 & 3.50 PM me for more details
