Me being a newbie Carper, i can not understand for love nor money why you Carp boys always have your pic taken holding a Carp, looking at the head or tail and not at the Camera. Whats that all about then lads ?? Ive been looking through loads of Carp magazines to get info, and you all seem to do it ! WEIRD!!!!

If you look at pikers, they all seem to look at the Camera.

I for one wont get into that habit even if i get a few lumpers. Straight at the Camera for me !! Can anyone enlighten me on this WEIRD pose ??

Not wanting to irritate people, i seriously want to know !!

Ive just posted some pics of the Carp i caught yesterday ( look under "newbie Carper " ). Im not holding them though as i was on my own. Nice Carp though.

I think its something to do with the fact its a pic of the carp rather than the person holding it, if you look a pic and the person is staring at the camera your drawn to there eyes i think its a natural thing that people do when looking at someone, If that makes sense

I'm with you on this Doug,it looks weird to me as well.I wonder if they look at their wives and girlfriends with the same expression of love and admiration? Very Happy .With pike its difficult to pose as we all know we have to get them back in the water as quick as poss.But carpers like their long lingering looks,photos of both sides and lets have all your mates round to admire the catch.There that should stir a few comments up from the carpers out there Twisted Evil .

I don't know but it's not a new phenomenon. I think an awful lot of carpers are keeping a dark secret. The long, drawn out gaze. The cheeky, almost indistinguishable hint of a smile. Hmmm.....kinda creepy actually.

There is an idea that before a carp being held goes ape shit it closes its mouth tight and fans out its tail so maybe that's why they are looking at the mouth or tail.
