Pu-l-l-l-l that carp, but don’t break your fly rod!

I went down to the River today for a couple of hours and ran into a Fishermen’s Spot customer, Keith Mosier, who was fishing it for the first time too.

I had a tough time hooking fish but, the one I did hook was big and broke me off on 2X.

Keith told me about a group of feeders that he had found and we went to take a look. They were tanks!

Keith graciously let me have a shot at them but I could get no love. He stepped back in and immediately hooked a nice one that took him down stream about 50 yards but he finally was able to land his first carp on a fly and I was on hand to take some pics.
