Thank You!

Bring your serious sight-fishin' carp face to this party.
All standard fly rods, tippet class and flies allowed.
All catch and release!

There are two separate divisions: Boat and Wade

Boat Division:
The Boat Division is a team tournament! Teams can consist of no more than two people per boat, at least one of which must be 18 years or older.

Wade Division:

The Wade Division is for individual anglers only! Anglers must fish from shore, and can not use boats for transportation. Waders are required (no wet wading).

Scoring Points:

Every fish must be recorded with a digital camera or phone, and each measurement must be with an official CarpThrow Down ruler (to be provided to each team or wade angler at sign-in) that clearly shows the entire length of the fish and a closeup of the ruler.

The 5 largest fish per length per team count: 1 inch = 1 point
The team with the most points wins.

The first fish caught needs to be photographed clearly with time (watch) + length (official ruler) for tie breaker.

Separate Trophies (Kentucky Bone) and prizes TBA will be awarded to the winners in the Boat Division and Wade Division. The “Kentucky Bone” trophy holds serious bragging rights and should never be taken lightly. LOL
