My first stab at carp fishing left my hands fish slime free. My buddy heath and I saw some tailing fish, but poor water clarity made sight fishing extra tough. I hope to stick one and decide for myself if fly fishing for carp is a fad or as awesome as people say it is. That, or I'm going to invent a way to noodle cats on the fly, and start the next alt fly fishing genre. I'll tie flies that look like a human hand, and use a 14 weight rod to jam them in a cat fish hole. Off course the rod and line will cost a bazillion dollars, compared to the $0 of equipment needed for true noodling. It's kind of like the $20 zebco and a dough ball for carp versus the overpriced fly outfits people stalk carp with. It's gettin dumb, and I'm mildly participating.
