Cowtown Carp Classic Comes Out of the Chute Kicking

Just when you thought it was safe to retire your carp rod for a few weeks, up pops another tournament in the BEST EVER YEAR for carp fly fishing tournaments.

It’s the Cowtown Carp Classic, and it is hosted by the good folks at Fatties on the Fly, which is a newer business that ties flies for profit.


NOTE – I am selling some of my own UNIQUE flies for this final tour event. You can purchase my Coyote Carp Flies for a limited time at 3 for $10-dollars, and the Flipino Midget at that same price. Let me know what you want, and I will bring some down. You can hit me on the PayPal button on this site – due upon order. Shipping EXTRA of course!
