Do you love big bluegill?
*Personal Best* Common Carp on the CARP BASIC RIG rig tipped with corn
Extremely impressive fish! Wow! Any approximation on this rotund specimen?
What weight fly rod are you using on them? Can you post a few of your carp flies?
Thanks Jim! A carp dude I know guesstimated it to be in the the high teens. I got all of them on a 4wt, and yeah I'll get some carp fly pics up soon.
This one is the most recent. I came across this one in a few inches of water tailing in some mud, and I had a black fly that I tied up the night before, after the usual craw colored patterns weren't working. On my first cast I got it about 8 inches away, the fish turned immediately and took the fly.
awesome fish on the fly Chris... i cant imagine... i feel like i was beat up on 20-0# braid and a 9-0 ft salmon rod
all excellent quality fish!
These are from a Carp Mafia party we had two years ago in May when 6 anglers banked 55 carp during a 6 hour 'session'.
