More about Me: I accidentally got hooked into carp fishing. I used to fish a local canal for panfish and bass. One day while float fishing worms on a 5’6” ultra-light rod for bluegill, I hooked into what I thought was a snag. Well I started to put some pressure and everything went bad. The fish started going everywhere and my reel with 2lb test was about to get spooled. I saw some color as the fish came up and was wondering what I actually had. Well I was slowly tired it out and got it in close and my jaw dropped. I was so excited that I got my first common carp, no camera, but I knew it wouldn’t be my last. From that day I was hooked. I now fish Euro and Match and now I mainly target carp. My fishing Idol would have to be Matt Hayes.
