  3.

  7. 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. ALL THE GEAR, ALL THE IDEAS 100’s of items of equipment from over 20 licensed partners including RidgeMonkey and Mainline Baits. Create different set ups to cover all situations and use some of your favourite real-world equipment from the biggest manufactures in the industry.

  9. It is with great sadness that I have to report that one of CAG's first ever & truly finest members Fran Slasinski (aka Damn Yankee on the CAG Forum) has passed away. He had been hospitalized for almost three weeks with complications related to the Corona virus. Fran was known to so many of us here both in New England & far beyond. On behalf of all our members we extend our condolences and heart felt sympathy to Fran's wife Rita and his family & many, many friends.
  10. The Board of Directors have discussed the impact COVID19 is having on our lives. As many States have issued Lock Down or Shelter in Place orders it has been decided to cancel the Spring 2020 Big 4 Tournament. If you would like a refund please let me know by Saturday, March 28th (5:00PM EST) so we may begin to process them. If I don't hear from you I will assume you would like me to transfer your payment to the 2020 Fall Big 4 Tournament. We have decided to raffle off a few prizes for those who choose to transfer registration fees to the Fall Big 4. First prize: A PinPoint Hook sharpening Kit (valued at $65) Second and Third prizes: A Signed copy of In Pursuit of Carpiness II DVD (Valued at $20). Stay tuned as we are cooking up a new contest to begin (hopefully) at the beginning of April. Stay Healthy and Happy! Amy Demrovsky CAG Events Director

  15. Champion of the Queen Award 2019 recipient - Dean Brookes Since its inception back in 1993, the Carp Anglers Group “Champion of the Queen” award (sometimes referred as “Protector of the Queen” award) has been used to acknowledge exceptional achievements in promoting CAG and carp angling in North America. It is named after the description given by Sir Izaak Walton to the carp in his book the ‘Compleat Angler’ first published in 1653 “The Carp is the Queen of Rivers: a stately, good and very subtle fish”. The Champion of the Queen is nominated by the CAG President and Vice-President and voted on by the CAG Directors. It is commemorated by an engraved presentation piece and a lifetime membership to CAG. I’m indebted to Dave Pickering who nominated Dean Brookes, CAG NACA Editor, and I was not only delighted to support Dave’s nomination but that we both Dave & I had the opportunity to present the award to Dean in person on the riverbank. Dean has been the NACA editor in chief since 2014 and has helped transform the NACA online magazines together with the annual printed editions. As well as introducing many top North American based writers Dean has also engaged some of Europe’s carp luminaries to write for the NACA. Dean has also been an engaged and motivated member of the CAG Board and a very well received presenter at the North American Carp Conference. He is also known to be a very fine angler and able catch a fish or three… usually bigger than mine! Congratulations Dean!
