Still can't cast my 8wt. Can't pull the cord on my motor to start my boat either. I'm afraid I'm out due to injury this year.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever!
I only use a 6-wt., and I caught my first 20 or so carp on a 5-wt. before I owned anything else (during the great cicada hatch of '98). Most of my casts are less than 10 feet.

On the flip side, it is a veritable truth that a carp man gets in his excuses early.

My particular whine is that I'll be getting married July 18 and then on my honeymoon and won't get to go acarpin' much. I will probably get in one trip before hitchage and maybe one after (if the new wife allows it ).

Brian, this is your year, my friend. I submit to a better carp man (as long as I'm bonefishing in the Bahamas \:D ).

Hot Dawg!

Can't wait to get ahold of one of those "nasty lookin' things"... This year is gonna be -my- year. Unless, of course, someone else enters.

I use a six weight... nothin' to it. You can get lots of pratice by hooking the end of your fly line to your riding lawn mower, then playin' it in as it drives riderless, willy-nilly around the yard. It's about the same as playing a carp...
