My dad just misses the 20 lb club...19 lbs 10 ounces. Nice! His biggest fish ever caught on a fly rod.

He's shooting for 20 tomorrow.

Mike and I are going back to the same water tomorrow before we head home to Montana. We figure to fish two hours or so is all, but we still know we can get one over 20!! Saw some today but couldn't get them to bite. Mike spotted my big fish tailing but so windy he wasn't in position to cast and I was upwind. Tossed a great cast finally, six inches in from of his nose in waist deep water. He moved just enough that I had to lift the rod and Fish ON!! Neither of us could tell by first looks what a big fish he was as whitecaps and muddy bottom obscured most of the fish. But, when he torpedoed for the big water his back crated a huge wake for the first thirty feet. I knew I had a monster!! Took my time to make sure I could land him. I was thrilled....

Have fun all you carp guys....the Reel John Montana!!!

Great fish JB Senior. I hope to get out with both JBs at some point.

That's awesome! I've yet to catch any huge carp like that!

Hope your dad is able to get into the "club" soon!

Didn't make the club this year! But I had casts at some whoppers that gave me a shot! I'll be back next spring and summer. See you carp guys then!

PS.... I wasn't at all disappointed as I had just a great time this year!

That looks just like my very first french carp, french carp are wondeful specimen fish. i would recommend carp fishing in france to anybody who is keen to catch big carp. Plus france has excellent weather for the wife to sunbathe.

As soon as the chilly winds Abercrombie Polos initially start to blow every year as autumn sets in; people go to their closets Abercrombie Polos and pull out their sweaters dog coats and ed hardy Hats jackets to ensure that they are comfortable as the temperature drops. Your Ed Hardy Sale dog deserves this equal treatment so when you pull out yours, do Ed Hardy Sale remember to pull out your dog's warm dog clothes as well.If the night is chilly, but Ed Hardy Swimwear not quite freezing, even something as Ed Hardy Swimwear simple as a warm dog sweater will help you to keep your dog warm.
