Well, like the original Star Trek Enterprise, I have been on a 5 year mission. In this case, my goal was to catch a carp on a fly every month for the last 5 years. Today I completed the mission lol. I was fishing before a small front and the carp were hitting like crazy this morning. I hooked 18 fish, lost 8, and landed 10 on a fly. Nothing huge, but almost all were over 20 inches. Now I need to think up something else to do while chasing record fish.

Thanks Tommar and Banker-Always Fishing. And as for trying 2 carp per month, I think I will pass. It is hard enough to catch one on a fly in February lol.

Fortunately, I have a spot near my house that I can be fishing in 2 minutes if traffic is bad and 1 minute 30 seconds if traffic is good lol. So I often make a quick run to the lake after work...and carp are abundant in the area.
