Fish: Common Carp

Fly fishing for Carp AGAIN in my local river

Just a fun video of some decent size carp on the fly out of my local river. The first part is pretty clear water so you can see the fish behavior right before it eats! [log in for link]

The carp are addicting. When they take a fly thereís no better feeling. I am a bait guy mostly now but on smaller water when you can see them the fly rod is king. In my experience itís like 20-30 refusals before you get the drift right but when it happens itís magic. Iíve only ever caught them on my 5 wt and man it feels like itís gonna break. Loved the video.

Thanks all. Trailerman... I totally agree. It's magic. I have never been much of a bait fisherman. To much ADHD . I enjoy fly fishing so much partly because it always keeps me focusing on something like my cast. That said... Bait fishing is way more effective and as I am getting older and calming down more I may start doing it more.
