Carp Fishing With SWAT Teams

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

Flycaughtcarp

Do you ever fish for carp on a fly rod? Tough buggers aren't they? Russ Miller landed this beauty a couple of days ago under heavy police presence. It seems SWAT teams make it even tougher...

Check out this story on carp fishing around the Democratic National Convention the past week and see all the trouble we got into.

Have a great weekend.

Eric -thank you very much.Alex, I had a similar experience on a one weight. Fishing for bluegill and about an 8 lb grass carp ate my fly. I had to break him off to save the rod.

Try catching one on a 2 wt and youre in for a hell of a fight!Hooked one while bluegill fishing with dry flys, It weighed 14 pds.

7Wt would be perfect. A five and six are pretty light, but you'll lose some bigger fish. I use and eight which is great, but a seven would be a touch more fun. Go get em this weekend!
