Keiryu Carp

by Terry Farmer

Took my Nissin 450 ZX (stiff) down to a carp spot I know of south of town. Rigged up with one of Johhny V's tapered lines, fluoro tippet and an eagle claw bait hook tipped with corn. Hooked up almost immediately. This beauty had my heart pumping to say the least. There WILL be more golden boys!

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” - Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


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