Well, another Carp Throwdown is in the books. A total of 36 anglers competed in a fun, action packed field of wading and boating divisions. Special thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers and The Fly Stop. We had a tie in the batting division this year, with each boat team scoring 90 points so we did an old fashioned shootout. We tossed a coin to see who went first and then each angler had three tries at a target that was seventy five feet away. Closest shot for each angler was scored and was averaged with their team mate’s best score. Matus and Dustin went first and on his first cast, Matus landed the fly 4 inches from the target which gave his team the lowest overall average, taking the title from last years’ winners, Tod and Brian Suttle, putting them in second place. Jon Hart wielding a Tenkara rod in the Wading Division and coming off a victory at the Lake Isabella Carpfest with his Tenkara rod just a few weeks ago, scored back to back wins with 89 points for first place. He broke one Tenkara rod but got it done! His partner in crime, Celine Bayla came in second with 80 points. Best Trash fish went to Lesley Smith with two catfish on fly, totaling 25 points. Good fun on Henshaw, great camaraderie in a family-like setting. Great raffle benefitting our veterans of Project Healing Water of San Diego. Doesn’t get any better than this for me! Here’s a few iPhone pics…will post more as they come in on CarpThrowdown website.
