We are getting closer to the big day. I had a little tease on Monday night. I went to look at the river because TrophyRoom.com is going to film an intro for the Carp Slam. The flow was perfect, about 75cfs and clear. I looked off the bridge and saw 15+ fish over 30lbs. No joke! They were happy and eating. Of couse Monday night we had that huge storm, Tuesday morning the river was mud and fish were probably safe from practice sessions. We’ve seen fewer and fewer thunderstorms roll through Denver as the summer has progress, and I suspect by August 22nd the Front Range will be dry as a bone, and the urban South Platte clear as a bell. The sponsors think so too.
Ross World Wide has donated a Essence 690-4 and an Airus 3 fly reel, and again this year RIO Fly Lines is donating their Carp line and 3 packs of leaders to all participants and volunteers.
