Well known carp on the fly blogger and occasional poster here, John Montana, graciously invited me to go out carping with him yesterday. John has been at it many years and i am sure some of you have seen his pics of huge, monster(30+lbs) carp he has caught on the fly.
So, yesterday him and i went to Sauvie Island, a wildlife refuge just out of Portland, and gave carping a shot. He of course caught the most, around 14 or so. I caught three, the largest being a tad over 10lbs.
John caught a really nice one that was near 13lbs or so.
This is going to work out well for me. I live west of Portland and can just pop over the hill and be at Sauvie Island in 30 mins and get a quick fix.
