A couple days ago I hit my local lagoon with one thing on my mind - carp. And now I might be a bit spoiled - this beauty came in at 33" or so, on an olive/black woolly bugger.

I can't wait to go out again. The whole sight-fishing process is addictive as h***.

Really nice! 33" Must have put one heck of a fight. Are you using a 5wt or heavier rod and line? What size tippett? Anice way to start off the season.

Awesome! I also caught my first (three) carp on the fly recently.

I'm fishing my 6wt and either standard 9ft 1x tapered leader or something hand-knotted and finished with 10lb flouro.
