Broaden your horizons and solitude.
With the big increase in interest of the outdoors, and our favorite rivers this year, those wanting some solitude should look to alternative species such as carp.
Non-trout finned creatures such as bass and carp offer more locations to an anglers repertoire allowing for more opportunities of solitude.
If you also like a challenge, carp will surely test your skills. I know it took me a few trips to finally connect with these finicky bottom feeders.
There are many, many places to try and catch carp (and bass) around the northwest, with a little effort and exploring, you can have a whole world of opportunity to yourself.
Swing by the shop if you are interested in learning more about carp or bass from the guys here at the shop, we have plenty of flies and supplies to get you going.
