When it comes to fish the common carp is pretty low on the sexy scale.
It probably ranks a little higher than your mother in law and has about as much class as Miley Cyrus. But what is funny about the carp is that it is only in United States that has that reputation. Here it is considered a “trash fish” and not worth going after, but over in Britain it is one of the premier sport fish. I have no idea why this is, but trust me the Brits got it right.
They are a blast to catch. I doubt you will find a harder fighting fish in fresh water. These suckers make bass look like your kid sister. Once you hook one it will feel like a freight train on the end of your line. If you have never caught one, you do not know what you are missing.
