I went back to the pond and had several shots at some tailers... spork and I had been there at lunchtime too and he was telling me about how Greyson would snag the bastards.... well this pond is so muddy that it is almost impossible to see the eats and when I saw my fly sinking right into the carp's mouth I set the hook... There was a father and son out trying to catch some bass so I asked the dad to take a few photos especially because the shots of the mirror carp suxed

Always good practice to remove the hook from the tail and stick it in the fish mouth #respeck

A snag in the face counts as an eat btw

I’d seriously enjoy getting into some carp. I never can find anywhere clear enough to find the bastards without a boat.

I have a super muddy pond with monster grassies in it and I have access to another pond with maybe 40” grassies in it as well.....but it’s in a cemetery with active maintenance personnel on duty. [emoji57]

I want a carp. Somebody help.

Carp be my new addiction—I’ve been checking the pond two or three times a day!

Some new fly ties — I think they’ll hunt!

These carp have forced me to up my knot game from what I've been using for trout. The Figure 8 Tarpon Loop Knot is my goto for loop to loop and to fly, replacing a perfection loop and no-slip mono knots.


its easy to tie and this video makes it simple to learn.
