The Home of American Carp Fishing
Connecting Anglers passionate about Carp
The American Carp Society was formed in 2002, with the goal of promoting and educating the public on the sport of specimen Carp Fishing in the USA.
The Common Carp (Cyprinus Carpio) is one of the hardest fighting freshwater fish in the world and is now being pursued by anglers of all persuasions, from fly fisherman to dedicated Specialist Carp anglers as a sport fish.
The American Carp Society is a membership based organization and is responsible for promoting the sport and ensuring careful stewardship of both the specimen fish and its environment.

The American Carper is a hard copy publication available to American Carp Society members here in the USA. It is 1.5 inches thick, weighs 4 lbs in weight and is printed on 105 lb text weight paper of the highest quality, with a matte laminate finish for an incomparably flawless representation of these great fish through both the carefully crafted word and picture.
The American Carper is not an answer for the latest rig, bait or commercial posting…There are no advertisements or commercial product placements contained within its pages. Its purpose is to look deeper into the reasons why we are all drawn to this great fish and the environment in which it lives…to inspire and encourage you to forge your own path as a carp angler here in the USA… to ask your own questions about this magnificent fish and to explore the reasons why we choose the journey… and the endless search for answers that abound at the waters edge.
Reading an inspired thought in the printed format and seeing a special moment captured in a carefully composed picture that stops time evokes the spirit and passion in us all that compelled us to pick up a rod in the very beginning….the size or species was irrelevant…These are stories of fish lost and of fish captured…and a look into the minds of those whose passion is deeply rooted.
