Travis Morris’ 29-pound carp at Blackfoot Reservoir

Thought we’d show you what swims in Blackfoot Reservoir in Idaho, where the soon to be held Fin Chasers Carp Classic occurs. This pig, a 30-pounder, was taken by Travis Morris during last year’s two-day fly-fishing tournament. Big as it was, the overall winner was a 33-pound behemoth that was landed by Robert Jenny. Get in on the fun this year, beginning May 18.

Those carp cruise the shallows and eat a variety of offerings, ranging from hare’s-ears to leeches and other secret society flies that you’ve got to be there to see. For more info contact Brooks Montgomery at
