Default First fish on my new Allen set up

Finally was able to get my new Allen Xa 10' 6 wt and ATS reel out for some fishing. Just wanted to post a couple of photos. This was my first time chasing carp. I was back in SD when I did this, just wish there were more carp where I live now. I might be hooked.

Here is the first fish on the new rig

I am using 7 wt Rio nymph line on this set up. The fly is one that my buddy just starting tying up one night. It is very similar to a hybrid carp fly. bead chain eyes, soft hackle, some purple and green ice dub, with a san juan tail.

John Montana's hybrid fly is a mean one for those guys! Nice catches, not a bad way to break in a 6wt at all!
