In the Denver Post, Will Rice writes about the thriving carp population in Denver’s South Platte and why skilled anglers consider them a worthwhile target.  “For any seasoned fly-angler who has stalked skittish fish in shallow saltwaters, this type of close-quarters drama is all too familiar. I have seen it played out in the warm shallow waters of Mosquito Lagoon, Fla., for redfish, the flats of Belize for permit, and in the mangroves of the Bahamas for giant bonefish.”
