Having just returned home from Junction, I couldn’t wait for my first opportunity to go down to the beach (Doheny State Park) and put up my banner and send my carp on its maiden voyage. As usual, there was almost no wind but I managed to get both up. My boy, located under the banner, spent the afternoon reading a book while I tried out my new fighters for the first time. I had no luck with the Hoopty and just limited success with the Fandango. I’ll keep trying. At the moment, I think I’ll start working on my next banner.
