    Nope. I'll have to check that out cause I'm kinda getting into carp fishing! I figured heck why not? I usually don't eat the fish I catch anyways and the fight is awesome if ya don't just horse em' in and there alot of them around here. Plus I have some pretty decent gear I could modify for carping like a Fenwick HMX (IM7 graphite) 6'6" 2-8lb. L-Power (HMXS 66L-2) Paired up to a Shimano Stradic 1000FH Magnesium reel with 8# Berkley Vanish "Transition" line but will switch to stren 8lb regular for carp though. Sound about right for carp or should I use a larger rod? Just curious?

    I've seen a carp-a-thon type deal around here too, wasn't called carpalympics, but they still look pretty cool. Maybe I'll do it next year
