|Big Carp, Skinny Water|
Fortunately, Blackfoot Reservoir always has a way of making you forget about all of this nonsense. Late in the afternoon, I spotted a massive carp rooting around in just a few inches of water. I made a stealthy approach, shot a decent cast and got an eat. The carp made a deliberate 18 wheeler-styled charge for open water and it was a beautiful sight...until I busted the 1x flouro tippet.
Thankfully, I at least got it all on video. Here is some footage only a hardcore carp nerd could love...with a few of this week's eats.
