“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.”
Hanging prominently in his fly tying den, this quote reflects the meaning of fishing for Sunny Sundgaard. And if you asked him what his favorite fish is to target with a fly rod? Carp. Period. Hands down the most fascinating fish he’s ever had the chance chase. Powerful, spooky, intelligent, unpredictable, all describe one of the most underrate gamefish to be targeted on a fly rod. His carp flies are inspired by a deep interest in innovation and functionality. He is consumed by what is possible with carp patterns that work and work consistently.
