Coming soon, The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing For Carp written by Kirk Deeter and published by Stonefly Press. CarpPro has hooked up a deal with Stonefly Press to take preorders now. Not only do you get from shipping buy buying direct from CarpPro, but they will throw in a free CarpPro sticker as well.

There is probably no one better suited for the task of putting together an all inclusive book on fly fishing for carp than Kirk Deeter. Aside from the technical understanding and know how of the sport that Deeter possesses (he is one of the fishiest guys I know), Deeter is able to effectively convert that knowledge and know how to text better than anyone else in the industry. How do I know that Deeter is legit, I fished side by side with him on Lake Michigan for several days and watched as he just about schooled me on everything from pinpoint distance casting into the wind to hooking up with fish. Deeter is the real deal.

Kirk Deeter
Deeter lays it all out in his new book, secrets and all, in a manner that anyone can understand, whether new to the sport and genre, or a grizzled carp veteran like myself. Do yourself an honest favor and pick yourself up a copy of Deeter's book. Better yet, pre-order your copy at CarpPro now!
