    Thanks for the tips on carrying the net with a pack/sling. We've still got winter, so it's probably going to be a few weeks till I can get out on open water (luckily the early c&r trout season opened Mar 1). I know some places nearby (Madison, WI) that should warm up early and have large carp populations.

    Great reel! Water is too cold for the fish to really rock, but I will like this cheeky for sure.

    I have never caught Carp as large as John does but , I'm keeping hope alive. I use a long baboo laminated handle with a rubber bag style webing made by Fishnak. I picked it up in BC a few years ago becuase I never had any luck with nets slung on my person. I stick the long handle between the wading belt and my back. It has a large hoop for Steelhead so if I get lucky and hook a big Carp it will fit in the hoop.

    I did land a cap on my spey, using a worm fly. highlight of my fishing year, so far. I need to not let them slip out of my arms before picture talking, next time.

    No net; use a pick axe!
    Oh, sorry. Thought you meant the invasive species.
