    Mind comes from a ficticious character in a number of songs by a favourite band of mine.

    Mine was given to me by my brothers. One year, all I could catch were carp. It didn't matter what lure or bait I used or where I fished. It seemed like I was under a voodoo curse. I'd yell to them that I hooked a giant bass or walleye or something and it would be a carp. It drove me crazy.

    Unfortunately, when your brothers know something drives you crazy, they immediately attack. They're like sharks when they smell blood in the water. They started laughing and coming up with all sorts of jokes. I was given all sorts of nicknames like, "Chief Dances with Carp", "The Carpinator", "Carpius Maximus", "Carpo Marx", etc.......FINALLY, they came up with, "El Carpo."

    They had a whole routine for it too complete with background story. It was loosely based on the comic book hero Zorro. They would pretend to be poor, helpless villagers begging to be rescued from invading hordes of carp banditos.

    Knowing that resistance is futile, I embraced my new identity!

    Doing my best stereotypical, Antonio Banderas like, heavy fake Spanish accent, I would leap upon the nearest tall rock , hold aloft my fishing rod as if it were a sword and proclaim, "Never fear good people! For eet eez I, El Carpo come to save joo frome deez deespeecible carp bandeetoz! Weeth my trrrusty rrrod and rrreel and my can of corn, I shall drrrrive them back eento the sea!"

    It was stupid, but we had fun.

    Anyway, that's how I became El Carpo.

    P.S. Counting Crows are a great band! [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]

    Captain Zero was an insult used by Paul Keating about John Hewson. I was reading a Keating biography at the time I became a member (it was a good book) and came across it and thought it reflected my fishing ability at the time.

    OK
    First off my boat was going to be called "DDK"
    That being Darren,David and Kyara
    Then i met my better half Kirsten.
    So with not having put a name on the boat yet i could change the name.
    Came up with "2DK"
    Then a certain part of my anatomy got the better of me and we had Blake.Time for a name change
    Hence the name "2DKnB"
