The FCC - UK is a brand new format but is derived from the hugely successful FCC which happens in France each October.
The event shares many of the FCC bits, but the expense of travel, ferries/train & big fuel bills has been taken away by running the event in UK.
The general information is as follows:
Name: Forces Carp Classic - UK
Location: UK Venue TBC each year
Venue: 60+ acres
Type: Pairs & Team format
No: 27 x Pairs
Prizes: £3,600.00 in cash prizes to be won (tbc)
Prizes: 1st Place - £2,000.00 (tbc)
Cost: £200.00 per angler
As always the event will be run along strict but enjoyable lines with our moto being -
"Firm, Fair & Friendly"
We always uphold our values with traditional Military fashion, check out our testimonials if you don't believe us...!!! (see below)
The only difference between this and its bigger brother is that for this event, we are fishing a single lake - ONLY the 3 x biggest fish caught by each pair will count towards that pairs overall total weight.
This means that the event is really open to anyone to win & can be won right up until the very end of the event.
Only pairs that have caught 3 x fish will be counted for the overall competition, so therefore you must catch three fish, regardless of size, to count.

In 2011 I first heard about the FCC and then fished the event in 2012. All I can say is wow.!! Tim & Russ leave "no" stone unturned and look after everything for the anglers. I have managed to place a couple of times and catch some great fish its now a regular part of my fishing calender each year.
Terry McCann, Ex-Army
The event is fantastic...I have fished it for 3 or 4 years now and what surprises me is the commitment from Russ & Tim, they work there socks off. I try to make the event every year now if I can, but work always seems to get in the way.!!

I've known both Russ & Tim for many years now and have fished many of Tims previous events. But when he joined forces with Russ & the FCC was born, well for me it went to a new level. The organisation, the thought and taking care of everything the anglers need just leaves me in awe. On top of all that they raise funds for 2 x charities as well, is just astonishing. Well done to them both because I couldn't do it that's for sure.
Roll on the next FCC.
