Hey giys have been reading the carp forum for awhile and have to say you guys are fanatics. I'm an all species fisherman love catching small mouth for the fight (there's nothing quite like a fish that fights like a mule put on an aerial showcase like that). I enjoy largme mouth fishing, but it becomes redundent after awhile. I enjoy stealhead fishin' but often get annoyed with the crowds. And then there's carp fishing. A lot of people don't realize that carp are very wise fish. The techinique constantly changes with each location you fish. Some nibble, others clamp down on your bait like they haven't had a bite to eat in several weeks. I always enjoy carp fishing when the time permits. Pound for pound they are one of the strongest fghting fish you will come across. Here is a pic of a recent carp that gave me a good fights running into the rapids.
