Default Re: 38" Carp on White Streamer

I have caught lots of carp over the years, and you are right about the condition of this fish. Very swift and strong in the water. Even as a kid when my friends would make fun of my carp fishing, I thought they were quite beautiful creatures.

It took all the care with a 3x on an 8wt rod I could muster. I have a friend who plays them like a big brownie on 5x... A very skilled angler, indeed.
