Well, The Fly-Carpin swappers not only punked me, they tricked me into video taping it. Thanks to The Orvis Company and Scientific Anglers for a GREAT swap and some awesome goodies.

When John says "target rich environment" he ain't kidding... Here he upped the contrast (which made the clear water turn green) so you could see the fish without polarized glasses on.

++Luke Nichols Joins CarpPro++
-Carp & Cat Specialist Expands Multi-Species Team-

Mar 20, 2014 - Round Rock, TX —CarpPro is proud to announce that Luke Nichols has joined the prostaff team. The Fairfax, Virginia, based angler is an avid carp angler that also fishes for catfish using Euro-style carp gear—he calls it modern cat-fishing. Luke has a thriving Facebook page, a Cats and Carp blog, and an active YouTube channel with some great videos showing catfish and carp fishing on the James River and the Virginia tidal basins and against the famous backdrop of Washington DC. Luke is a further addition to our multi-species team that includes David Graham of South Carolina.

Luke is a native Alaskan who grew up watching his father, grandfathers and older brother catch salmon, trout and char. When he left to enter law school, he took his fishing addiction with him. He targeted the trophy-sized catfish that haunt the Mid-Atlantic region. He also began to write about his exploits; publishing his first paid fishing articles shortly after.

"My first carp was caught on a 4wt fly rod," explains Luke. "It was from a decorative koi pond on the college campus. Early sessions were legally dubious so I'll say no more. Suffice to say, I was a carp convert."

Luke began experimenting with Euro-style carp fishing techniques after he bought a used British fishing video from the 80s. A few year later, with two UK trips under his belt, he was a zealous modern carp angler who has no qualms about using European carp tackle to land big catfish.

"Much of the carp gear translates well into cat fishing," Luke explains. "Bite alarms, rod pods, long rods, bait runner reels; It all has advantages for cat-fishermen."

"We're thrilled to add Luke to the team," says Tony Cartlidge, CarpPro co-owner. "Luke is not bound by the traditions of either sport and doesn't buy into the single-species snobbery that sometimes afflicts the sport. He shares the same vision as CarpPro and is very much awake to the crossover potential of carp and cat-fishing. He's going to be a very valuable prostaffer."

When he is not fishing, Luke practices law. He is a criminal defense attorney and partner at the law firm of Nichols & Green pllc. Most mornings Luke can be found reeling in a few cats and carp from Occoquan reservoir before work. However, his happiest fishing trips involve his young boy and beautiful wife, Rebecca.

Please give Luke a very warm welcome to the CarpPro team and go check out his blog and videos and share his Facebook page.
