Re: More than than you can shake a stick at...
Yes, your 2 wt wouldn't stand a chance. Give it a try with your 8 wt, sounds like you have the correct pattern. I took the grandson (4 yr old) out the other day to a private pond with smallmouth bass and grass carp, but the owners don't want us fishing for the carp. They are fun to watch and extremely wary. We were using poppers after the bass and the carp just ignored those, but we had a great time with the bass even though it was a little slow.
