Welcome to the British Carp Angling Championships, one of the most prestigious and historic carp fishing competitions in the worldwide angling calendar.

For the last 22 years the BCAC has paved the way for many anglers to take the limelight and boosted fishing careers. We host qualifiers at a number of fantastic carp waters across the country that suit a variety of fishing styles and techniques, with the final being held at one of the most historic venues in the country, Broadlands!

Every year has thrown up surprises and we don’t doubt that this year will be just as nail biting as the rest. On entering our 23rd year we have once again gained the support of so many great angling companies and continue to build relationships to get our competitors some awesome prizes!

You choose 1 Round to enter, which will enter you into 1 semi final. The letter next to each of the qualifying round relates to which of the semi-finals that you would fish should you qualify, so please consider this when choosing your qualifying venue. It is £450 to enter the 2022 event. For more information on the running of the event please click here.
