  1. Thank you! I don't take anything personal, it's good to see people so passionate and careful with their fish. I also fly fish and bow hunt, so those pictures are not a great representation of me as a sportsman. I care greatly about my quarry (you develop a respect for an animal you stalk for 8 months or so before you can harvest). As for the alternative option for a landing mat, thank you! I have already ordered the item you linked
  2. I apologize for landing the fish this way as my close friend has the unhooking mat, and had to leave but I wasn't done with my trip. These were my first fish and I will be buying all that equipment before my next trip. Thank you everyone for the tips and will be much more careful when landing and unhooking. Sadly everything good is mail order from across the pond, they are still considered a "trash fish" here (the state record was actually shot with a fishing bow) but hopefully that is changing soon! I hope I didn't offend anyone too badly, I was excited about my first catch
  3. Hello from Massachusetts! I just recently got into carp fishing after seeing the success my close friend was having. The only people I know that fish for carp are close friends of mine, so it's nice to have somewhere else to talk to people and bounce ideas off of. The two photos I've included are my first and only two carp. Looking forward to catching some larger specimens!
