When you say "large" what carpage are we talking here, Woolly? Can you give me an estimate?

I believe the one I hooked was probably 26 - 28 inches and Nijinsky is over 36”

Last night I finally got a hookup on a large carp... I flubbed he hookset and dropped the line so the fish ran 30 feet before becoming tight — I set again and thought I was good as the fish ran me close to the backing. Put some pressure on the fish and the hook popped out.

Later I saw Najinski cruising around on the surface in the middle of the pond, I had to good shots and saw the fish turn to the fly. Solid strip set to no avail!

The hunt continues !

Damn nice day right there.  Good old Pop-R. A timeless good topwater bait.
 Those bass look a little stunted. Or is my eyesight just too old ?

Probably a little bit of eyesight and truth about stunting.   Like all small ponds the fish soon out-eat their food source.  Actually the owner says keep any less then 14 inches and release the bigger ones. My freezer is full of trout and crappie and I am about to head to Alaska for salmon fishing so elected to release them all.  When I have someone with me they bring a cooler and take the smaller ones home. Same with my pond near my cabin in VA.

I suppose this is heresy because it was not with a fly rod but I was fishing and they were biting what I was throwing. I had a fly rod along but saw no reason to change as long as I was getting a consistent bend in my rod.


My ride this morning.

Two more since that big one. It is definitely going to be a great morning. Most are coming up for an old style Pop-R (I gave most of my bass tournament gear away years ago but kept a few items just in case)

I have missed a half dozen or more before finally getting a solid hook up on this one.  All going back as the owner says "catch & release" - works for me!

Another nice one. This is a good day.

Big bass of the day LOL. I guess he thought if he ate that plug he would not have to eat again for a week.

I caught a couple more including this nice one but they seemed to have turned off about noontime. Probably about 20 in all and at least 10 misses or loss before getting to the boat. Got 2 that were about 4 pounds, the rest a pound and half or maybe two. Couple less than a half pound. Wish I had someone here local to share it with. Difficult to fish and keep the canoe under control at same time. Also hard to take photos with your $700 phone which is waterproof but not loss proof if it goes over the side. All in all a very good day.

Saw some tabks but they are old and wise.

Small ones still count.

Low light this morning— 5 good shots at carp feeding in close to the bank in shallow water... still can’t see the fly or the carp’s mouth— 1st one turned to the fly, I set the hook... too early or too late—- had another eat but no love

Spit tobacco juice on them flies.


If I chewed tobacco I would try this...

Wasted another couple of hours at the muddy pond today. Many shots... zero hook-ups

Read this article but it hasn’t helped... I feel like I’m due some good luck soon.
