It seems like only yesterday I was reading the few blogs dedicated to Carp on the Fly, absorbing any little tidbits of information I could get my hands on. I remember people's reactions when I told them "Yeah dude, I fly fish for Carp". The past few years have been absolutely incredible as far as the Carp Revolution goes. People are finally looking to them as a legitimate game fish and many specialized products have hit the market. With this new respect, quite a few annual tournaments have popped up as well. Some of the more noteworthy being the Denver Carp Slam and Carpocalypse. New this year is the Carpicide Tournament being held in the Minneapolis, St Paul area, and it is the first of it's kind with a reasonable ticket price, as well as being held at a location close to home. The event is being sponsored by CarpPro Magazine, as well as Isthmus Fly Fishing Co. Rules and other information can be found at http://isthmusflyfishing.com/event/carpicide-2014/! All ticket sales benefit Trout Unlimited!
Both Ben and I will be competing. We both hope to see you there!
