Holy carp! 2019


This years Holy Carp! will be held in May 18th at Bayou City Angler Fly Shop Daylight to 5pm. So mark your calendars and start carpin! Captains meeting is May 17th at Bayou City Angler 6-8pm. If you cant make it please let me know.

This is the first stop of the Texas Fly Carpers United series. You can choose to fish one, two, or all three tournaments. The three tournaments are still individually separated but we’ll be combining everyone’s scores in the end, and the person with the most total inches of carp after all three take place will be crowned King of the Texas Fly Carpers! Donavan Clary was crowned last year. You think you got what it takes?

As for Holy Carp! it will be the same as the last three years! Looking forward to seeing what this year will hold. Last year over 580 inches of carp were turned in. I'm betting this year will be more!
