Armed with some new flies from the legend himself, I set forth with renewed vigor and hit the pond early for a couple of hours in hopes that tactics confirmed by he legend would result in at least one hookup. There were a number of opportunities as the carp were feeding along the bank. However, despite my determination and new flies, I only succeeded in molesting the fish.



Coffee hot, fishing not so much.

Credit where credit is due. "The Legend" did a great job at the SRTU meeting.   Here are a couple photos..............





Notice that he even came dressed for the occasion


I fully expected Woolly to go right out and slay them the next day - maybe he was sleeping when the secrets were revealed.

I tried. Got an F from the carp.

Number 10!

Two hours at the pond today did the trick. There were a few other good opportunities and I got robbed once by a bluegill that swooped in and took the fly almost out of the carps mouth! I had one eat but upon hookset it was gone. There were also herds slurping on the surface but they had very little interest in the cicada that had been effective before. They mealy swam under it or around it or just came over for a look, but none took a bite. Mostly they were 80 to 90 feet off the bank, but occasionally the came in closer at 40 - 60 feet.

There are a few other fishermen that come to the pond on a semi regular basis, one is a young guy who spin fishes for bass. He was there the other day and when I came down he told me that he had been fishing with corn and had hooked a carp but it broke off shortly afterwards. I told him that he might have a hard time landing one on his ultra light spinning rod. But he was stoked at the prospect.

Today I got to use my new net for the first time, for a while I wondered if I was crazy for 1) buying it and 2) hauling it down to the pond.
