Champion of the Queen – 2017

This year’s recipient is Dave Pickering.

Dave has exemplified the Objectives of CAG in every way. As the State Chair for Rhode Island for the past 10 years Dave has demonstrated exactly what it takes to grow membership, run fish-in’s and perhaps most importantly teach people about the joy of carp fishing.

He gives talks at sportsman’s shows, is a renowned freelance writer and member of the New England Outdoors Writer’s Association (NEOWA) and has also appeared with On The Water TV. Dave is also the CAG Secretary and as an active CAG director has given countless hours of this time to supporting the organization & its obejctives.

As an angler Dave has captured some remarkable sized carp over the past 25 year and since retirement averages 1000 a year (including 1300 carp in 2015!) As an all around angler Dave also manages to fish for a wide range of species in both fresh and saltwater.

I want to thank CAG for this honor. It came as a complete surprise. I know there are many other hard working volunteers in this organization that are equally deserving of such an award. Looking back at past winners, I feel honored to be included in such a group of special people whose passion is carp fishing.

Thanks again.
