Re: clinch river fish, what is it?
Im with you RFowler. Carp are like fresh water redfish. Good for one blistering run and then a bulldogging fight. Find a mud flat and throw some small woolybuggers at them. You might change your mind.
They are not too much to look at compared to a trout, and the mouth is downright homely, but no teeth and really not as slimy as a trout, particularly a brookie!
