While I was at the World Catfish Classic fishing for Team USA and Easy2Hook after Wels Catfish in Spain this past May I got invited to fish this lake in Romania for Carp. I remember saying, “Yes, I would love to one day.”, I didn’t know “one day” would mean literally three months later!
I am headed to Romania to fish the “Meet Carp Romanian Awards”, a Carp fishing tournament, taking place August 6-10th, at Tancabesti Lake, also known as Two Brothers, Two Lakes. I’ll be fishing with Frank Warwick and Jason Cann, one of the best Carp fishing teams from the United Kingdom! In last year’s event, the team lost the lead in the last hour, and ended up 4th overall.
I’m excited about setting up camp by the lake and fishing for 100 hours straight. The field of competition will be tough. There are 28 other teams fishing for the grand prize of $10,000 Euros. Winners are determined by the aggregate weight of five carp! I’m looking forward to this experience, and learning Carp fishing techniques from one of the greatest, Frank Warwick.
I plan to put the tips and tricks to use next month in Italy, when I compete in the “World Carp Classic”. I’ll be representing Team USA, JRC, Berkley and Easy2Hook fishing with James Vincent “Vinny”. Vinny is well known in the Carp and Wels Catfish Circuit. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to fish and learn from two of the best. My Carp fishing adventure and the tournaments are being filmed by Hungarian based hunting/fishing network, PVTV. The footage will air throughout Europe on their network! PVTV played a huge part in bringing me to Romania to fish. I will also be airing the footage from this tournament on my show, Larysa Unleashed, which will start airing in 2013 in the United States.
Since I am flying in the day before the tournament and we are fishing 100 hours straight, I kid with my other team mates that I can take the night shift at watching the rods since I will be awake from jet lag!
I’ll have a full report for you when I return from 5 days/4 nights of non-stop carp fishing at the best 5 Meet Carp Romanian Awards!
