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.
