The ten commandments of carping

Recommended Posts

So, I would like to create the "Ten Truths of Carp Fishing". I originally thought of the ten commandments, but in todays age that is too much religious connotation.......so...with that, here's my thoughts- not in any order though........appreciate feedback and submittals!

 

THE TEN TRUTHS OF CARP FISHING

1. You will not catch a carp if you do not fish

2. No matter where you are fishing, the largest carp are on the other side

3. The carp you lost is always larger than if you landed it

4. The weather is always better the day you don't fish

5. There is always one more piece of equipment that you need to catch that 30lbr

6. You always forget that one more piece of equipment you need to catch that 30lbr

7.  There is always a bigger fish than the one you catch

8. The picture you take with your fish adds 10lbs to your weight

9. The carp is smarter than you

10. You do have time to carp fish. You have the same amount of time that Einstein and Michelangelo had; you decide what you do with your time! :)

Truth #1 is absolute gospel!  It is the one etched in stone.

Truth #9 unfortunately, can be true at times.  Especially when you are showing someone "the ropes" and attempting to impress them with your fishing know-how.

Truth #10 is generally true, except at crunch time at the house, when a lot of those jobs on the honey-do list are already way overdue (because of Truth #10).  And you'd better not be even thinking of going fishing today.

The rest of Mo's truths are right on, and just come with the territory.

Excellent!  If you only knew how many 50lbers I’ve lost😁

Hmmm... .Truth No #11???

That brings to mind another truth that Mo may have inadvertently left out of the original Ten Truths.

You know, the one we are all very well aware of, really don't want to admit to it, and tend to look the other when it occurs.

Yeah, the one about fishermen and prevarication.

Rereading the Truths again,  I see Truth #3 already pretty well covers the case against all those alleged 50 pounders.

So I'll humbly have to ask Mo for forgiveness.

I'm glad you cleared up that name thing.

After keeping up with your phenomenal luck landing all those creek carp, it began to make me wonder if you weren't getting some sort of divine help.  Although there is nothing in our by-laws against it, waving a staff, parting the waters, then just picking up the fish somehow seems too easy.

Now that I know that isn't the case, I'll go back to believing it must be your hat.
