Orvis Full Flex fiberglass fly rod and carp
I caught a carp on the Orvis Full Flex fly rod in Passaic, New Jersey. I hooked eight carp
but only landed one. I don't know why this happened. At first I thought it might have been
because I used too small of a hook size( #14).
I tried a larger hook size. And I lost what felt like a big carp (he ran from one end of the lake to the other). It seemed that my hook set was good . I fought the fish no different from other fish I' ve landed in the past. Could it be the rod? This rod is old but it has caught a lot of fish.
What is odd about losing the fish was I landed one and then proceeded to lose a few more.
