Last Carp Slam Practice Day

There have been some subtle examples of pre-slam intimidation and "rod rattling" (B. Reynolds turn of phrase not mine) going around.  Well, I too can play that game.

Game On!

This was a pretty small fish and I didn't exactly slay them on my last practice day, and I don't bear much resemblance to a scary and hairy gangsta type but it is the best I can do. 

Overall my practice sessions went great.  I am going in with a fair amount of confidence and the new beats setup (awesome, great job DTU!) got me motivated to fish at least 5 miles of new water in July/August.

As a bonus I hooked a fish on the drop today on prototype #3 and it was an absolutely massive take!
