    Do you like Carp? Do you like Fly Fishing for Carp? Do you like hanging out with guys who like Fly Fishing for Carp? Do you like winning Prizes for catching Carp? Well, Bunky, this is for you!

    You're 14 ahead of me.

    But how hard can it be to catch the ugly beast?

    My first year really putting time in chasing them, I landed exactly one. In about twenty outings. I felt like Danielocean.

    Can be darn challenging. High water this year has compromised my usual go-to spots. Hard to sight fish when you can't see the beasts.

    I foresee this becoming a "thing".

    "How was it yesterday?"
    "...oh man, I totally Danielocean'd it"
    "Ouch, better luck next time"

    YES, but when he actually starts landing fish we will have the inevitable "oceans 11", "oceans 12" etc jokes we can make

    I went to the first one.... and it was a blast... pretty much because I won smallest carp.

    The first one was held within walking distance of my house, and I didn't hear about it until it was over and they posted pics here.
