Default Re: big carp

Anytime I see a carp caught on a fly rod I get excited, because I instantly understand the challenge and skill involved in hooking and landing one.

All anglers should feel that way when they see a carp! Though, truth be told, MOST of the people I speak to seem to appreciate the carp from at least a fighting sense, if not because they think they're desirable to target (they are!). I'd rather catch a large carp with my fly rod than a large brown, rainbow, or any other species.

Well done! I'm still waiting to catch my first -- having just read this thread for the first time I'm leaning more toward using my 6 weight and my spool of 8-12# test tippet vs. my 3 weight .
