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 simply love in print.
— Clayton
Both editions so far have excelled at featuring anglers that represent the best the american carp scene has to offer. This is not the typical US carp publication that preaches to the choir with regurgitated information but rather a beacon of progress and excitement.
— Derek W.
In every way completely and stunningly professional. The entire publication is engaging, stimulating, and breathtaking. Both the visuals and articles inspire me to fish often and document the experience in a way that progresses the sport of carp fishing in the right direction.
