Another way (not) to catch carp

People often ask me "T.J., is there just one way to lose a carp?", to which I reply "Absolutely not - there are many, many ways to screw things up, and it's the wise fisherman who has a full quiver of options!"

They will also say things like "And isn't it enough just to have hooked a carp? To just be on the water, enjoying nature's bounty?", to which I will reply "That's the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard."

  2. That is some of the finest non-catching that I've seen in a long time. Extra points for the tantrum. Very artistic. Oh, at that one you caught weren't so bad too.

  3. While I can simply enjoy "nature's bounty" -- it is about the catching of fish. Otherwise, we night as well all just be hikers. Brilliant video, and I agree with Steve....style points for the tantrum. :)

  7. No, it's the English accent that makes one seem like Elton John. Or, as I call him, English Elton Johnny.
