My first fishing experience was when I was 6 or 7 and I went to local lake with my Dad and his friends. They were fishing for carp and I had a small kids float rod and was catching tiny roach until suddenly, from nowhere, I hooked into what felt like a great white! My Dad and his friends couldn’t believe it as they saw the massive carp surface and nearly snap my rod in half. My Dad helped me as best he could to try and land it but unfortunately it was to be “the one that got away”. From that day on I was hooked and addicted to that adrenaline rush!
