Didn't know anybody considered carp serious game fish, and definitely not worthy of discussion in the same conversation with trout.
you sir have obviously never fished for a carp on the fly. I just went fishing for them the first time last week, and honestly, they are much harder to catch then trout. you have to put the fly basically on their nose without spooking them. There is also no indication that they have taken the fly other than their body might have changed positions. Hard fighting, super spooky, and just a pure blast to catch.
