I have heard many people compare fly fishing for carp and saltwater fly fishing. After watching this video, I can see why people say that. Often looked at as a trash fish, carp are slowly becoming the hot fish to target on the fly. They are proving to be difficult to catch, live in unique environments, and fight like hell.

This video follows along musician and woodworker, Wes Walsworth. Wes lives in Idaho and has access to some of the best trout fishing in the US, but he chooses to target carp instead. Check out the full video to see what is getting people so obsessed with these “trash fish”.

This video was created by Sage Fly Fish. Be sure to also check out Wes’ furniture on Instagram.

The video of the week is selected and written by FlyLords team memberĀ Conner Grimes.
