Welcome to the British Carp Study Group

The British Carp Study Group (BCSG) is a national single species organisation for experienced and successful carp anglers.

About Us

The BCSG's main purpose is social, encouraging the free exchange of information between members who, by the nature of the standard required for membership, are some of the most experienced carp anglers in the country.

It is a non-political organisation and therefore does not have a political agenda. However, it is a group member of the Angling Trust.

Applying for Membership

Membership of the BCSG is open to anyone, although to be accepted there are qualifying standards and you will need to have been carp fishing for at least fifteen years and able to demonstrate angling success on a number of waters. This is because we want membership of the BCSG to be something that carp anglers aspire to and we hope it will be the ambition of many carp anglers to obtain membership.
