It was a pretty decent fight but of course I dont see any comparison to a small to medium size carp. Still a good fight though.

This proved to be very true, Im going to try and get after some monsters this weekend, some i saw last time were probably in the 40" range


I am very familiar with missouri fles that guy is a fly fishing guru and yes I have seen the monster grass carp he has caught on a full range of flies! I am proud to say I own a few of his ties and they have produced well for me this year tell him bucktail says thanks!

Yea thats usually the case but no one seemed to mind and it was more a small lake than a pond so I called it fair game
