Still carping in Utah

Recommended Posts

Had a short 4 fish session last Friday evening after a nice dinner date with my wife. Set up at a small urban fishery near the office with freelined sourdough bread crusts on the surface.

Doesn't take long to get into the action.

First up was unexpected - a nice Grassie.

Next 3 were all commons in the 8-13 # range. 

Had to use my headlamp and cell for photos so only a couple pics were taken.  Due to the heat and wanting to get the fish back in the water quickly, I did not weigh the grassie which would have been a PB at ~30# and 40 or so inches.

Hi Folks

Not long moved to Sandy in Utah from the UK.

Spent many a weekend and week fishing for Carp as a younger man.

Now it is time to take it back up again. 

I'll be that strange guy with a strange accent fishing for on of the hardest fighting freshwater fish out there.

All the best and tight lines

I may be new joining you guys here but that's because I thought I was alone fishing for carp. I live in Utah where carp are seen as a trash fish. Never have I fought a fish so hard in my life as when I started taking up carp fishing. I created a YouTube channel to help change the stigma at least that is my hope. Everyone here that fishes for carp in Utah join me on my channel which is fairly new right now. I am asking for this not for the views or subscribers but more so that people like you and me in utah don't feel so alone in our favorite fish. Comment to my videos. Need my fishing fix on YouTube

Hello there need my fishing fix YT,

I am the Utah state Chairman and I have a page on Facebook if you would like to join us.

You will be surprised at how many of us fish for Carp in Utah. Not as many as I would like but it is fairly healthy.

I will check out your Youtube channel and please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any more info on the Carp Anglers Group Utah

Tight Lines
