I know everybody is curious so here is a quick update on the Carp Slam. I will try and write more when I am not exhausted.
We did not win but I did catch a fish and more importantly I learned a ton from Ty and had a blast. I will try and write about some of what I have learned recently in the next week or so, I am too tired to do much more than this update. I really think that I need to do a total shift in tactics on the river to make the jump from somebody who can almost always catch some carp on the DSP (not being humble that is actually really big) to somebody who can drop the hammer on them like Ty. Wanting to win is always a fun part of competition but I do the slam to try and learn how to take the next step from guys who have.
Clint Packo (my partner last year) and Will Rice won with three fish. Couldn't happen to a better couple of guys and that isn't just bullshit. Keep an eye out for whatever Will Rice writes about the big fish Clint caught because....you just want to hear the story, trust me. No pressure Will!
Team Fly-Carpin also raised a very respectable amount of money ($275.00) to benefit the South Platte. I am so grateful to everybody who contributed! I am going to try and do the drawing for the hats Monday, DTU has a backlog of people needing a list of contributors so we will see if I get the list by then.
