Fishing for Carp - The Beginnings
Carolina Bonefishing with Captain Paul Rose is a professional flyfishing guide service started 9 years ago as a way to introduce carpin' on the fly to eager anglers like myself.
What started as a small group of both fresh and salt water longrodders, has now quickly grown to a larger group of carp addicts. Being centered around Charlotte, NC and the Catawba river chain lakes, many surprising flyfishing opportunities exist close to the cities popular attractions. The "carolina bonefish" or the common carp thrives here giving fly casters a long season and the chance to deliberately catch a very worthy opponent. If your looking to hone your saltwater skills close to home or planning your first redfish trip, go prepared by practicing what you need on the water with the Carolina bonefish.
