Carp Rod is not Just for Carp!!

I seem to be bucking the current often these days. I have been fishing fixed line for the last year and for the last 6 months exclusively .... I found that standard Tenkara rods just didn't work well on the waters I fish in in north central Pennsylvania .. Nymphing is standard fare. The Diawa 43M and 53M were clearly a great improvement over the standard rods.. Along came the "Carp" rod .... Even better ... if it was not so long in length I would have said perfect.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
