"I think you'll know "the one" to mount 'cause it'll be bigger than your measuring board! And I'm betting you get that 13-incher this season. Which do you think get the biggest, the males or females?"

Hi Mr. Gaines... My name is Rob...

I fish Perris every chance I get... but haven't tubed it in a while since Bernasconni has been closed until very recently.

I've admired your catches at Lake Perris, you obviously have applied due dilliegence.

You are obviously fishing the timber which means lost tackle presumambly. I am curious whether you use a sink tip or not? or a floating line and lots of patience.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hey Bob I would like any info on how to catch carp on a fly. I have wanted to try this for years. Any info would be great.
