Talking Carp were bitin' yesterday!

Yesterday I took the boat out on the local lake to stalk some carp. I saw loads of fish and they were quite cooperative. I managed to get three to the boat, broke off one other and had a few other hits and misses. All of the fish were over 10 lbs and the first one I landed was a legitimate 15, maybe more. I'm pretty sure it was the biggest carp I've landed on the fly rod to date . They were all caught on #6 or 8 brown woolly buggers. Here's a photo of the big one:
