One of the more remarkable developments in flyfishing in recent years has been the exploding popularity of flyfishing for carp. As a species, carp are surprisingly difficult to hook and even harder to land.The unique challenges they present to a flyrodder have turned carp into the fastest growing segment of the flyfishing industry.

He is a current Pro Staffer at, presents at fly clubs and shops throughout Oregon and Washington and his blog Carp on the Fly is one of the most popular carp hangouts on the web.
