I caught my first carp! This was one of my main goals for this summer and it happened early! It was my first cast of the day (black BH wooly bugger, per usual) and I dropped it right in front of a group of four feeding carp that I could see subsurface. Thank you polarized sunglasses. It was a 12-15 minute battle and it was incredible. It's like catching a semi truck on a 5WT. No big splashes, but it did run me into my backing. I am addicted and hope for some more carp encounters this year.
