Rethinking Carp

ggcarp

Head over to Gink and Gasoline for a great little piece on carp. They’ve been called Golden Bonefish (or Hillbilly Bonefish around here) for a long time, and I agree that the name doesn’t fit. For the last few years, bonefish have been at the top of my favorites list, but the opportunities to catch them are hardly frequent. And even though I’m just four short hours from the Lowcountry, redfish don’t happen as often as I’d like. However, just about everyone can find some carp within an hour of their home, and they present a challenge very distinct from the bones and reds to which they are often compared.

If you haven’t yet, give ’em a shot.
