|Chul hooks up on his first ever carp with his new Sage DS2 rod|
Normally such an occurrence would leave me cussing but for whatever reason today I just moved on. Within minutes I spotted more and casted to them. I missed several. I would either be late to set the hook, too fast to set the hook or just pull the fly away from the fish. I was on a pod of fish when Chul called again I let me know he was here. I let him know where I was on the water and met up. I spot a few fish for him, by this time the wind was ridiculously hard. Casting was now problematic and I was concerned that I had Chul come over again just to waste his time. We fished together at several pods trying to get one to take. Chul as what seems like an everytime occurrence, sank too deep in the water filling his rubber boots with that nasty ass water. I chuckled and we moved on.
We found some more fish and I was casting to Chul's left when I heard a splash. Initially I thought that he had fallen in until I turned my head and saw his Sage DS2 (the one I built) bent over. Yeah! I told him YOU BETTER NOT LOSE THAT FISH! After several nice runs he brought it in and I helped him land it. At just under 4.5 pounds on the boga, not bad for a first carp. Finally he got one. Tuck looks like you are in beer debt.
Afterwards I managed a dink largemouth just so I wouldn't be skunked for the day.
