The British Carp Cups (BCC) are a series of carp match fishing events run throughout the year at many leading carp fishing venues across the UK. Founded in 2012, the BCC originally comprised two events, the Midland and the Northern Cups. A Southern event was added in 2013 to make up the three regional competitions and this format ran until 2015 when owners Mick and Belinda Coxon introduced a further two new competitions, the Ladies British Carp Cup and the Mixed Carp Cup further strengthening the BCC series.
BCC events are typically a mix of social gathering and serious competition open to anglers of all levels. Such is the popularity of the BCC series that regional BCC competitions now include qualifying and final events before a grand final later in the year and both regional and final events enjoy good media coverage.
Reuben Heaton has been involved with the BCC series since 2013 and winners of the BCC mixed, ladies and final events win specially designed Reuben Heaton scales as part of the prize table. For more information on the BCC go to www.britishcarpcups.co.uk
