The 9th Annual Carp Throwdown brought to you by Conway Bowman and me is happening Saturday, June 3rd 2017 at Carp Headquarters, Lake Henshaw in San Diego. If you have never participated in this event, it is a blast and one of my favorite fishing events of the year. Its the place that the best carp fisherman all converge to highlight their skills and get drunk, LOL. Only kidding! Some of the best people I have ever met are at the CTD for sure, great group of guys and girls. There will be music and popcorn on Friday night and we have an amazing raffle to help support our good friends at Healing Waters. Thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors that help make this possible. Hope to see some new faces this year. Cheers
I highly recommend coming out this june to the hodaddy of all carparandum, the bowman/q carp throwdown. this is a feel good, fun event held at lake henshaw. we have partnered up with the fly stop this year so please stop by their shop and show some love. barbecue and live music on the friday day night before. camp out or rent a bungalow. great prizes. this will be our forth one. we try to time it right around the famous hopper hatch, when grasshoppers literally get blown into the lake and are gorged upon by acres of carp. the event is a fly only tournament, and most of the fish are caught believe it or not on dry flies on the surface. wade or boat, it’s sick, it defies logic but it all happens in june, join us! it’s on! www.carpthrowdown.com registration should be up on the fly stop website soon.
Our friends at the Fly Stop in San Diego and all-star cameraman Austin “Dirtycarp” Trayser of Beattie Outdoor Productions put together this sweet carp adventure film. Look for it at the Fly Fishing Film Tour this year…
