Editorial ♥ CARPPRO ✍ 2013 TACTICS & TACKLE MEDIA NEWS EASY ACCESS STYLE REVIEW BUY! COMING TOGETHER Commentary from Tony Cartlidge When we talk about the North American carp fishing scene we don’t automatically think of one style anymore. Some may picture rod pods and Euro styles and others might visualize fly fisherman stalking wary carp in urban streams and skinny water. For many, many more that are part of the longest-standing and most populous branch of the sport, it is impossible to imagine carp fishing without paylakes, packbaits and half a century of family traditions. That’s why we have returned to our “mix-mag” format this month. Don’t worry, the Fly Special was no one-off and we’ll be alternating between mixmags and specials along the way. It’s a nice problem to have--a carp scene that is almost too big for one magazine format. You may also notice that we have not separated the magazine into sections. This is a deliberate choice. There is a lot of crossover and support across the aisles as fly, paylake and wildwater carpers come together to coalesce into a scene.
