Switch Rod Week Contest: Why Catch "Trash Fish" on Switch Rods?

By Kirk Deeter

I've been fortunate enough to have travelled throughout the world to catch many fish in interesting ways. But my pinnacle achievement was the day I took a Spey rod into downtown Denver, and caught a carp by swinging a Babine egg fly through the muck. 

You can ask my pal Will Rice, or Michael Gracie, or Tim Romano, or any of the others who were there as we rode in a bright pink, Hindu-themed school bus (a short one, for the record) from golf course to drainage ditch, to municipal pond throughout the Mile High City. This really happened, albeit in a seedy slough of the South Platte River behind a cemetery. And it's now an urban legend. It may indeed be the fishing feat I'm ultimately remembered for.

I want you to aspire to that same pinnacle of angling greatness. I want you to make the two-hand tradionalist/purist types squirm in their skin. And I want to literally give you the tool that makes it happen.

So if you want a free Cabela's TLr switch rod (a $150 value), simply tell me how you're going to catch a carp with it. Or a sucker. Or some other "trash fish" species. 

I want to know where. I want to know how. But most importantly, I want to know why.

Good luck!

I am gonna be swinging nymphs on the penobscot river for alewives, just because I can't catch anything else down there. And I'll be proud of it

I'd like to throw a large streamer (shad mimic) in a still section of the Illinois River, OK. My target...alligator gar. The challenge is not only catching one, but also getting it off the hook once it's in. Then I'll have to find a good recipe for the nasty brute.

I'm going to use it to catch one of the Mark 46 sized carp that sun in the shallows of the lower Genesee River by dapping from over 100 feet above on the Pont De Rennes pedestrian bridge while savoring the fragrant bouquet of Cream Ale wafting from the brewery on the east bluff of the gorge.

I want to catch a carp on a new cabelas switch rod at an old drainage lake near latrobe, pa called St.
Vincent pond. I'll cast out a rubber leg san jaun worm and hopefully it'll drop right in the strike zone of a monster carp. I like catching carp because most people look down on them and call them "dirty trash fish" but i see them as "golden freight trains" cause when you hook up on one of these beast they run and sometimes battle like a tarpon. Its probably one of the best site fishing you can do for big fish without having to fly to the keys! -Dream Big Carp Catchers!

I'd LOVE to get the chance to swing the spey in the Anacostia River in Washington, DC. My trash fish of choice would definitely be a snakehead. I think it would be an epic fight with the spey as well as it would do the river much good to get one of those things out of the ecosystem!

I think it would be great to drop trouser worms for Carp here in Montana on a Switch. But really I want to catch another Slender Armored Catfish like I caught last weekend in Balboa Park, Los Angeles. In a giant city park with quincinera parties and every language possible, a Montana guy with a switch rod and a soft hackle walking up and catching an overgrown aquarium dinosaur, on purpose, would be way cooler than stumbling into one on my Dad's old 6 weight like I did.

Funny how everyone equates carp to trash when there are more of them being caught on the fly these days than other trashy predators. I'll be throwing black and purple bunnies in the south park lakes of 11-mile and Spinney for pike! Why....there's no other trash fish that will lie in wait, stalk and completely anihilate a fly with with such a vicious strike and take, oh, and watch out for the teeth!

During early spring the carp will hit the shallow mud flat of a local lake. They will tail just like redfish. The muddy water gives zero visibility and the carp have their heads buried 4-6 inches in the mudd, making them difficult to catch. I use a white weighted wooly bugger dipped in vanilla. The secret is keeping your line tight. Carp will pick up and spit our a fly before you realize you had him. Look for subtle movement in your line.

Or, fish for active fish chasing minnow patterns in the fall.

Why, because there is nothing else in Ohio that will make your reel sing like a carp.

Many of the kids at my university think the local river glows with radiation and I even heard a kid once say that he "got the sh*ts just from standing in water up to his knees," in the Hocking River. However, one of my favorite things here at OU is to sneak off after class and toss flies at the bass, crappie, carp, catfish, gar, suckers, sheepshead, and all the other fish that live in this river right running around campus. I've yet to catch one of the Ohio bonefish a.k.a toilet plunger-faced (insert expletive) a.k.a carp on the fly, and I think a switch rod may be just the trick. There's a serious gar population too with some real monsters that could also fall victim to said rod. Maybe with a two handed stick I can boost casts out farther to make for my apparent lack of stealthiness and catch these elusive feesh.

I will take it to Fall Creek at my secret grass carp spot and then fish there with a box full of streamers wooly buggers or whatever else they might be biting on and I will also bring a box of pop tarts and the biggest bottle of soda I can find because fishing is about having fun even if its a "trash fish" on your line. I like the fight.

Connect the dots on this one. I've got a brother in Ohio that bought an O/U shotgun. He hasn't shot it yet, and bought it 6 mo. ago. I told him to go out to a WMA where they plant pheasants, and hunt. He says, Ohio doesn't plant any birds, they only write tickets at those sites. My buddy just got back from his home town in Gliddon, Wisconsin where he grew up. Says the woods don't have any grouse in them like when he grew up, and the streams don't have any trout as well according to the locals. Puts things into perspective, and why the fishing industry's journalists got together and decided to promote carp fishing with a flyrod! Sure glad I live out West, and don't have to be ya.

With the end of the world so near, future opportunities seem limited by space, time and resources....Where: With our remaining time, (and prudence dictates that you FEDEX the rod if you really want it used in time) I would fish several isolated (yet chock-full-of-carp) ponds adjacent to the Appomattox River, Petersburg, VA. The fly--the soon to be extinct Hostess Twinkie. The reason--If we survive the impending apocalypse my feat will never be repeated with this same bait, except thru the creation of an artificial imitation. This accomplishment will become what the Twinkie was not able to achieve--immortality. Better buckle up and button up ya'll! :P

My local warmwater streams often features cliffs on one side, high vegetation on the other, with branches overhead.

There's some big ol' carp in there - but when the water's low and clear, its tough to get close enough without spooking them. I think a switch rod would fit that scene pretty well.

I would go after some 3-foot gars that I see hanging out in this remote quarry lake I discovered this past summer in Iowa. Instead of using a hook, I would catch them with a 6-inch piece of nylon rope that is frayed for the last 2 or 3-inches. They say their teeth get so tangled you can haul them in. And I hear that gars put on a leaping, twisting fight that is quite spectacular. I've never used a switch rod, but it sounds like that one would fit the bill just fine for my endeavor.

Downtown Philadelphia. Schuylkill River. Grass carp the size of SEPTA buses, finning in the slackwater behind dumpsters and shopping carts.

Why?

They once asked John Dillinger why he robbed banks. The answer -- "That's where the money is."

I will use the rod for golfing. That is catching the carp that populate the ponds of the puget sound area golf course that I live on (home waters) and also in the tama river in Tokyo Japan (work waters). Carp always seem to be where people are. Tama river holds 50+ pounders.

Why, because carp are the Clydesdales of fish. To call then simple horses is an understatement. They are also one of the most difficult freshwater species to catch. A 20 lb montser sure makes the bass guys jealous. They are incredible on the fly and tend to be where access is easy.

How, with a great spey cast, dropping a variety of flies to these fish. The theory that they release a scent warning to other fish when they detect a threat seems true. SO It is key to change it up. I throw, carp crack bug looking things first. Then wooly buggers at various weights to cover the whole water column. If I can sight fish then I also will move to crayfish and big worm imitations. Nymphs work great in fast flowing rivers.
Would love to try the Cabelas rod
