With $100,000 on the line, the state’s first carp open fishing tournament started on Monday with 40 anglers competing for the top prize.
These anglers will head to the banks of the Connecticut River for the week-long competition. One of those competitors is Avon resident Iain Sorrell.
Sorrell said he is hoping his 50 years of fishing experience will serve him well in the CARPTS 2015 Connecticut Carp Open. He was set up at Great River Park in East Hartford on Monday morning.
