Default Muddy water fun

I had a great feeling about the river today and arrived bright and early about 7 A.M. After wading out to my spot, I tied on a black Kat Killer and had myself a field day with Freshwater Drum, Longnose Gar, and Carp. I managed to land two nice Carp and lost three HUGE fish that I had no chance of besting. I was using my 6wt Echo. I usually use my 8wt, but the tip busted when I was out yesterday. I was holding the rod in the middle looking at one of the guides and a large fish hit the fly dangling in the water and went deep. I'm happy that today went well because I needed to get my carpin' on and it felt great. It was a great way to break in the new rod. Here's some pictures!
