Fellow Anglers,
I've been collecting nicknames for carp lately for a writing project that's been going on for too long now. After a year, I think I've exhausted the relevant carping literature and Google (if that's possible), so I'm turning those of you neck deep in the marshes and mud.

If you've heard of any nicknames pertaining to the noble bottomfeeder or where those names might have originated, I would love to hear it. When I complete the list, I'll be more than happy to post it here on the forum.

Thanks everyone.
