Carp are some of THE most elusive and technical freshwater fish you can pursue with a fly rod. We are lucky enough to have access to a world-class carp fishery along the Front Range, but quality carp fishing can be found darn near anywhere in the United States. They require precise presentations, a keen pair of eyes, and some stout equipment that can stand up to use and abuse. There's a lot to love about chasing carp. They are measured in pounds, not inches, and certainly will take you into your backing at a moment's notice. They're a very worthy fish to chase with a fly rod in hand.
In this video, Rick Mikesell at Trouts Fly Fishing breaks down the necessary gear you need to start pursuing carp with a fly rod. From rods & reels to fly line and accessories, we're here to get you set up and ready to get after chasing these golden ghosts on the fly.
