That sounds like fun. I know a couple of the guys from the downtown orvis store carp fish to sharpen up thier skills before going after bonefish, etc. I guess the presentation, the run, and the sheer size of the fish bears similarities to the tropics.
Saw an epsiode of Walkers Cay with Flip Pallot and Lefty Kreh catching them on some Susquehanna mud flats. Looked awesome!
