That brings up another question: Aren't koi nothing but fancy looking carp?? I would suspect these things may be pretty big by now.

And now you are making me think I should look for a cheapie rod in case I break it. Whenever I caught a big, old smallmouth back in October, I darn near snapped my rod reeling him in. I must admit, it was a load of fun landing it but nerve wracking since the rod tip was totally bent.

I think there is a cheap fiberglass rod for sale on Craig's list. It is an old Diawa 6# for $35. It has been there for a while, wouldn't be surprised if it were gone.
