The SA Carp Society

The South African Carp Society is a member based organisation with the sole purpose of promoting the sport of ethical carp angling in Southern Africa, providing education to anglers on proper fish care and taking on environmental challenges related to angling.   

The South African Carp Society was established on the 1st of October 2008. Our member base is growing by the day and soon we will have the numbers to demand that our voices be heard. Carp Angling is not only a sport but rather a passion towards greater achievement in life.



Why the SA Carp Society?

Carp angling in South Africa faces a lot of challenges which include lack of education, lack of proper fish care and management, environmental issues, pollution, implementation of the biodiversity act, irresponsible bow fishing, poaching and more. Incidents of poaching and fish deaths related to pollution, reports of irresponsible bow fishing activities and other activities negatively impacting on our sport and are on the increase. It needs to STOP!

The SA Carp Society is committed to play a major role in addressing these issues, whether it is to expose these activities through our existing media alliances, education or assisting organisations during decision processes, the SA Carp Society aims to ensure that our members are represented and our needs communicated where necessary.



What do I get in return?

Apart from having the peace of mind that someone is proactively lobbying for carp angling on your behalf, the SA Carp Society offers members access to exclusive venues in SA.

Some venues just aren't safe to fish anymore. Crime statistics have reached all-time highs at a number of venues. Some lakes are so polluted that you are not even allowed to go in the water. At some our specimen carp fish stocks are being wiped out by commercial netters while others are netted by poachers. At this very moment our future hangs in the balance. BUT, we say NO MORE!!!

The South African Carp Society believes that we must look after ourselves, so we are actively sourcing private venues for our members.



SACS Member Galleries

The website has two galleries: 1 on the top bar and 1 on the left side bar. The gallery on the top bar contains photos of members updated from the Outdoorpages website and the private gallery on the left bar contains photos sent directly to SACS for publication on the SACS website.

 

 If you want photos of your catches to be displayed on the private gallery, please provide photos of your catches by e-mailing it directly to SACS at  members@sacarpsociety.co.za. Kindly also provide info on your catch like the weight of the fish, tactics used (rig & bait), venue (if you want to mention it), date caught, anglers name, etc. You are also welcome to provide a brief description of your session and SACS will post it with the pictures you have sent.  

The purpose of the private gallery is to provide you with a gallery that contains with it the experience of your session.

Carp Angling under threat from authorities

Good day to everyone It came to my attention that a meeting was held with Committees of Conventional Angling Clubs in the Free State Province where Nature Conservation was present. During the meeting a representative from Nature Conservation requested that all carp (big and small) and other invasive species be removed if caught during competitions. They requested assistance from anglers in removing invasive species from all dams due to the threat the posed to indigenous species like the yello...
