Hi all! Caught this carp yesterday at a new swim (just trying to pile up spots for FFF 2017!)....slammed the bait and popped the pole off the bank sticks!...Great first run like a summer carp!- 6lb 4 oz, but when I looked at the head, both sets of lower barbels have developed what appears to be sensory extensions!- both upper barbels were split as well-since it is all symmetrical and identical on both sides, I don't think it is a results of trauma-the tissue is too uniform and unbroken/scarred. To me it appears to be a step-up in, or throwback to an earlier version where the ancestors had more polyp-shaped barbels or local environmental adaptation?........anyone seen anything like this?- It also had an elongated ventral lobe of the tail-sickle-shaped in a way.........I've looked through all my photos and photos of carp online, books, etc......I placed a photo of what I normally see ( last week's carp) and yesterday's............He/she is back in the water and maybe more babies will look like this?- or she will grow to monstrous proportions in a few years!!!.... all thoughts welcomed!!
Just received and will be receiving this week a lot of restocking inventory, including a few new items for our fall inventory. We'll get it listed as quick as we can. Fed Ex is reducing our shipping rates, but due to the multiple variations on the size & weights of our items its going to take some work to dial it in. Rest assured if you are over charged we will issue a shipping credit towards future orders. If you have any questions just email us firstname.lastname@example.org. A screen shot of shipping charges and we'll let you know if its not correct, plus we can pass the info on to the techs working on this. We always try and ship the most cost effective way possible, either USPS or Fed Ex. Wishing everyone a great fall season from all of us at BCT!
