The bum showed up again at lunch time as I was getting ready leave. The carp weren't cooperating for me or the bum. But I went back in the late afternoon and had several reasonable shots at some tailers, but the ingnored the fly that I dragged and droppen onto thier dinner plate. I saw that I caught a grass carp at the pond one year ago, so there is still hope to get back on the board before the odd deminish as fall turns to winter.

The development of the old Hanes Property continues.. they cleared out the woods around the pond to "improve" the view... cutting down many trees, but they did drag out the huge fallen oak that was in the pond, there is still one more oak in the pond on the SECCA property, but the banks have been cleared to open up the lower part of the pond. Hoping they don't fence it off or post it......

They have cleared out all of the woods and eliminated the kudzu from this end of the pond and destroyed all evidence of the old trail. I don't think it will be too long from now when they erect a fence and post the land, but I hope it's not until I catch a few carp who like to hang out on this end of the pond.

One think of concern, for the developers, is the state of repair concerning the dam, which imho is in need of repair!

Got a little excited today when I walked down to the pond and saw some mud plumes!

I'm way behind on the carp count. I've gone about a dozen times. Mostly in the afternoon. There is always potential. They haunt me. I've had a few shots. They see me coming and bolt. Today I went earlier. I cast to cruisers with no luck. One fish was feeding on the bank. The fly dropped. The fish ate. The knot on the leader gave way. I'll be back.

This was an old blood knot that stepped down from thick to thin, I should have put a new leader on but I was lazy. My bad on that one.  I cursed and then apologized to the ladies up on the parterre.

I've had more blood knots fail than any other knot. I prefer double uni for carp leaders; give that one a go.
