Carp On The Fly Special Issue

(Click the picture to get a better view of the cover.)

Have you been bein' good?  I know most of you have been; not all of you but most of you.  Are you just not sure what to ask Santa to bring you on Christmas?  Got your eye on a new reel?  I do.  Maybe a rod?  wading boots, a pack, or a net perhaps?

Just when you thought you had hinted at everything you could possibly want here comes one more thing that is just totally cool!  The December issue of USCARPPRO magazine comes out on Saturday and it is devoted entirely to Carp on the Fly!  WooHoo!  Get this, you don't even have to ask Santa to bring you this.  Watch here for a link to the magazine and you can start celebrating Christmas this Saturday.  If you have been being good this magazine is just for you.  If you have been being bad, this magazine is just for you too.  Is that a cool yule or what?

Among many other topics you will get to read articles about Carp behavior, stalking the wily critters, late season tactics, fishing the two fly rig, and detecting the take. I can hardly wait!

My article is about detecting the take.  Along with my article I produced a video giving explanation and showing several different takes.

This magazine is a multi-media endeavor.  Editors, Dan Frasier and Tony Cartlidge, have been working for months to bring us all a top quality product.  Watch for the magazine; it is going to be impressive.


  1. "Eight beasts a'bubbling, seven carp a'clooping, six slabs a'laying, five golden bones, four tailing hogs, three fat hens, two cruising pairs and a Carp Carrot with a brass bead."

    Sorry Mr. P.

    Too much eggnog I guess.

    1. More eggnog, more eggnog, more eggnog please! I want to hear the other four days. A recording would be good too.

    1. Kevin, I will post a link as soon as it is available. From what I understand there is at least one other video besides mine. I'm really looking forward to the finished product.

  3. Video! You go P!

    I am so excited to see the final product.

    1. Thanks Trevor. The thing about video, well maybe everything I do, is that it always takes longer than I think it is going to. With video I feel I am doing VERY well if it only takes 5 times as long as I thought it would. Seriously.

      I'm anxious to see all of this come together. It is going to be very cool.
