First carp on a fly rod
I remember my very first time fishing for carp. The excitement is breath taking!
It took me about thirty minutes to compose myself after landing it. I drank a quart of Gatorade and that was not enough to calm me down. I felt like I had just run up stairs at full speed. That first carp is like no other; so I can appreciate what this fly fisher experienced. How did you feel after the first carp?
