If you are a beginner or an experienced carper, we'd love to have you in our group. To become a member of the RI CAG, you must first join the national group. To join, go to the website at http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/cag/ At the top of this home page, you will see a tab named membership. Put your mouse on that and a drop down menu will appear. Click on the "join now" tab. You will then be taken to a page that shows the membership types. You want to select USA 12 month membership. You will then be directed to an info page along with a check out page. The cost of membership is $30 a year initially and then $25 to renew every year.
For that membership cost, you get total access to the Forum, membership in the state group, access to all contests, fish-ins and tournaments, the NACA magazine and some discounts at online carp stores. Best of all, you are part of a network of some of the best carp fishermen in not only RI, but the entire US, and info you can pick up from these guys is priceless.
So, hope that there are fishermen out there who will consider joining our group.
