Carp throwdown FLy Fishing

Woahhh nelly, what an interesting deal that was...  It's that time of year when last years war stories and fish tails fueled by Pabst Blue Ribbon and warm fires are starting to get old.  "Yes Frank, I know, your rainbow trout was exactly like a the scene in a River Runs Through It except for you were all wet because you tripped on a stump and I am not sure what the fish was because you didn't get it reeled in."  We aren't yet...although out here we are starting to see warm water the point were we can start crafting the next years adventures.  It's that weird post christmas faze where we all sit around, check out new gear, check weather reports every 30 minutes on our iphones, and naw off our hands looking at trip ideas for the upcoming season.  So we thought we would take an interlude and join Zach Matthew's over at The Itenerant Angler podcast "in studio" for a little discussion on all things carp fishing, San Diego, mako shark, and most importantly the June 13th annual Carp Throwdown.

Podcast Carpthrowdown Itenerant Angler

All in all it was a pretty enjoyable hour spent talking to a tin can as if it where a person and wearing ear muffs somewhat similar to fighter pilots while trying to explain why in the heck we fish for dirty, smelly, muddy, bottom feeders.  Interestingly enough our carp fly fishing was also recently featured in the fly fishing film tour and RA Beattie production Carpland.
