THE AMERICAN CARPER - EPISODE 26 - The Olivier Gandzadi Interview with Sean Manning
In this episode of The American Carper we sit down with one of the USA's most recognized Angler's ....'Da Snipa', Olivier Gandzadi. Born originally in France, Olivier emigrated to the USA a number of years ago and has been passionately fishing for both Carp and massive Sturgeon on the Columbia River ever since. We discuss his approach to both species in a wonderfully personal interview that really explores his journey starting with his very first rod, given to him by his grandmother in France, to fishing for large carp in the city of Paris and targeting the prehistoric Sturgeon and powerful carp with his friends on the Columbia river today. We take a look at the approach needed for large carp in a tidal river and the tackle and understanding needed of their environment to successfully catch them. An angler with a great sense of humor and love for the species who lives for the moment with his fishing....we get to see the real man behind the 'River Madness' in this special episode....and Olivier doesn't disappoint, with tales of targeting some 'refrigerators with fins'.

THE AMERICAN CARPER - EPISODE 22 - The Tommy Robinson Interview with Sean Manning
Fishing for carp in Tidal waters? That's one of the many topics that we address in the latest American Carper Podcast. Tommy Robinson has been fishing for carp here in the USA for 40 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with Angler's of all experience levels in this podcast. An amazing guy, great angler and ambassador for the sport, Tommy fished the World Carp Championships in 2005 that were hosted by The American Carp Society and spends some time discussing the marathon event and what took place. With Carp over 45lb to his name, Tommy is also an avid multi-species angler and discusses the attributes of the Snake Head as a worthy quarry when he's not fishing for carp. With plenty of laughs and a great sense of humor this is not to be missed!
THE AMERICAN CARPER - EPISODE 21- BOWFISHING AND THE JOURNEY OF REDEMPTION - The Dan Ketterman Interview with Sean Manning
Do not miss this incredible episode of The American Carper as we discuss a journey of redemption from former US Bowfisherman Dan Ketterman. Dan has been an incredible advocate for the sport of Catch and Release Carp Angling in the USA over this past year and has dedicated himself to spreading the word on the attributes of this incredible fish. He shares in depth his former life as a bowfisherman and describes in detail the pivotal moment where everything changed for him and he had to start targeting the species on rod and line only. So many anglers can learn from his introspection, thoughts and approach to, what is understandably, a very sensitive topic amongst carp anglers. There are some great moments in this interview as Dan takes us through his history.... A great angler and example of how to approach this sensitive topic, we can't thank him enough for his courage and leadership in tackling this important topic.
I love listening to this podcast, particularly when the topic is carp on the fly. Fly fishing for carp has renewed my love for the sport again. Listening to some of the guests on here sharing their knowledge expanded and sparked my own passion. The photography on their Instagram is of high quality and standards. Keep up the great work!
Calling all Carpers!
This year was my rebirth as an angler. Since hooking into my first carp on the fly, I haven't had a productive day of work or a full nights sleep. This podcast has slaked my thirst for carp knowledge. The organization also seems first class.
Thank you for making this podcast exist. 🙏
