John,A very nice and informative article about carpfishing on the fly.I am from the Netherlands an I am a carpfisher. As you might know, in europe carpfishing is huge among recreational fishing. Most fisherman have great respect for the carp and treath it with a lot of care. Flyfishing on carp is not a big thing over here. Mostley carpfishing is done with 2 to 4 rods with longdistance-systems in combination with boilies as a bait. There is a smaller group of carpfisherman who realy stalk the carp with just one rod, a waggler/float and a bit of mais or other particles. I prefere this last way of fishing. We mosteley fish with a baitpresentation on the bottom of the lake/river or whatever. In the summer there also is a small group of carpanglers who try to catch carp on the surface. In that case we mostley use a breadcrust, pallet or drifting catfood as bait. But fishing with the fly almost never is our way of fishing. Because I think it is great what you do, I wrote a little of your kind of fishing on my (new) blog: http://pendingen.blogspot.nl/2012/12/amerika.htmlKeep up the good work and all the best from a follower from the other side of the ocean.Greets,Michael Schaper
