  3. Good advice.
  4. 6' is a bit short & don't get fixated on "Carp Rod" as the official classification... look for the more Moderate actions among 3-pc. Inshore rods (7'-8') & Salmon/Steelhead rods 8'+

    I just saw this. Simply amazing! Well done. Great potential on that river. Always intriguing to fish it.

    2019 CAG CTX Throwdown - *New Format*

    Let the sling drain a bit, hang the sling and set the scale to tare weight if possible, the weigh the fish. The dial scales might not be able to do this but my electronic scale has this feature. I'm trying to figure out to set the tare weight to zero and program it to add three pounds.😈

    Pennsylvania Roll Call!

    2018 was a very challenging year to try for carp in flowing water here in SC PA. I ended up fishing a lake near me that I'd never fished in for carp previously. The first day I was actually fly fishing for bluegills and noticed carp surfacing nearby, so I cast a few times in the direction and after letting the fly sink a bit I'd retrieve slowly. The ninth cast or so I saw the line twitch and was into a carp which 35 minutes later tipped the scale at 17 pounds. I went to the truck and got my carp rods out and threw in some pack bait for chum. Then I cast and waited. After an hour I finally got a screaming run and well I got worried several times after seeing the size of the fish that I would lose it. When I did bring it to net and weigh it, I realized I had a new personal best common at 40 pounds 1 ounce. That's the biggest there so far, but a few good ones were caught and I plan to fish it a lot next season. There still are some big fish around even though many fall to those ignorant bow hunting f**** I wish people would all respect wildlife but I guess there will always be those who kill just for fun.

    Congratulations! Well done!
  16. There are fly rods that have as many as seven pieces for backpacking. With any graphite rod, make sure the ferrules are snug. The least little bit of play will cause the female ferrule to crack. Had a fellow who cracked his rod tip by doing this. He asked if I would fix it. He wrapped it with sewing thread and coated it with super Glue! Totally ruined it.

  18. I might give a 3 piece rod a shot. Was always worried about the integrity of a 3 piece rod. 99% of my rods are 2 piece so maybe I just need to get over it 😅. I always wanted to get a telescopic Daiwa for traveling given that I've had great experience with Daiwa tenkara poles but something about a telescopic regular fishing pole gives me the heebie-jeebies.
  19. Can't help with your question but I have advocated a 10-13 foot rod with three pieces. My 13 footers broken down into two pieces fit in my Honda Odyssey van but the little Ford Ecosport is too short.
  20. Folks, Had a quick question about a very specific piece of carp tackle. I'm looking for a Chub Outkast Stalker 6 ft. 2 piece rod. Any ideas as to where I can order it from other than harrissportsmail. Just wanted something compact for a change that I can travel with. Taking my 10 footers everywhere if not that fun 😋.
  21. I saw in his profile that he was reading this thread yesterday afternoon, but it's no big deal. Thanks, Jerome, for the information. --Frank
  22. Ok, I heard from him, he's back in the UK, he sold all his gear, nothing left...
  23. Guys, I think Stuart doesn't have access to this section of the forum anymore, since he was a trial member... I tried to send him an e-mail asking for contact information... Will let you know.

    Is this bad behavior in Ohio or normal nation wide?

    HI Roger, Unfortunately this behavior is not limited to Ohio or even just carp anglers. It is also seen in other USA States and especially when an area produces larger than average fish. Please feel free to message me directly as I would like to understand a bit more about the circumstances and background. Many thanks, Iain
