KarperCentralewas founded by the brothers Tom Snoek and Maarten Snoek in 2015 under the name Scale Brothers. The name stems from the first fish they caught together, a scale carp. The two first fish the young brothers caught can also be seen in the shop. The passion for carp fishing has been instilled in them at an early age. Jan Snoek, the father of the brothers has founded Carp Connections with Paul de Flines (current owner of the French pay water Lac de Villedon) and Hans Sissing (still owner of Carp Connections and manager of Fishing Resort Du Der).
