Got out Sunday with Ryan and Capt. Paul and hooked up on a couple. I'm rusty as hell, but managed one little guy after losing a couple due to slow hooksets, and one very heavy handed hookset. Nothing broke on the boat...so it was a good day. Carp carrots are the shiznit.


It's all shit, piss and bliss.

Ahh c'mon, I bought the piss in the bottle for you. I figured you would feel at home :P. We sipped on some Dales Pale Ale for your info! ;D

Good day on the water until the boats started churning it up! Sight fishing to carp is addicting.

Carp can be a hoot on a fly-rod.  I've only caught one.  Kinda looks like a warm water Whitefish.  I assume they can't jump - or at least they don't enjoy it.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

Yeah, they're a bitch. Ryan got one the first time he went out with me, but it took me a long time before I got my first one to the boat. Keep trying the carrot. The one we were using was the sparsest fly I think I've ever tied, but they were chasing it down. The next month should be really good. Clear-ish low water and hungry fishes in the flats.
It's all shit, piss and bliss.

Yeah....I think we just need some cooler weather down my way....everything was chasing flies...but nothing was eating. b';

So who's willing to post a pic or pattern for this carrot fly?   ;D  Help a fellow carping brother out...

This is a shitty version of one of mine with orange antron body, light olive hungarian partridge hackle, and some wiggle dub for the thorax:


The one these carp were caught with had no thorax dubbing...very simple fly. I believe Mr. P ties the original and fo real carp carrot...
It's all shit, piss and bliss.
