Wild Carp Companies, of Baldwinsville, NY, USA, promotes catch and release carp angling via educational demonstrations, angling lessons, tourism promotion, hosting fish-ins, tournaments and the Wild Carp Club

2013 Wild Carp Club of New England

Wild Carp Companies is proud to announce the third season of the Wild Carp Club of New England.
There are five sessions scheduled for the season. All sessions are free to attend and Carp anglers of all experience levels are welcome.

Anglers will earn scores based on the weight and type of Carp caught during club sessions. Scores will accrue over the course of all sessions and year-end prizes will be awarded.

Participants must be at least 16 years of age and hold a valid Massachusetts fishing license. Children under 16 are welcome to attend and fish, though their scores will not be counted toward season point totals.

Anglers are welcome to arrive and depart at any time during club sessions—just check in and out with club directors.

Wild Carp Club may be competitive in nature, but it is mostly about having fun and meeting fellow anglers. Always maintain good sportsmanship and be courteous to other club members.
