Re: warmwater pics

Hit the water again this morning after I got out of work in an attempt to get another carp fix. I lost one because my knot came untied. After that, they disappeared. I did manage to land this guy on...

Re: Hallelujah! First carp on a fly rod!

It took me the better part of a year to bring one to hand. I have heard time and time again, if you can land a bonefish or a carp on a fly rod, there isn't much that you can't land. People have this...

Re: Hallelujah! First carp on a fly rod!

I was using my 8wt rod and they both put a serious bend on that rod. I'm not sure I would have been able to enough pressure on them with a 5wt rod, they probably would have turned it to toothpicks.

Re: Epoxy/nail polish scent

I have heard that carp can smell/taste head cement/lacquer on flies. When tying carp flies....I stay away from both.

Re: 5wt To Handle Carp

The places around me here in NC, I have to think the same thing. I would say that all the carp that I have seen are easily in the 15-20 pound range. No little pups that I have come across. Which is...

Re: 5wt To Handle Carp

5wt seems a bit light in my opinion. I'd think that you'd get taken into your backing nearly every time you hooked one. Mind you I have yet to land a carp, but the ones that I have hooked into have...
