Hit up a local pond for so autumn carp fly fishing. This is my first fall specifically targeting carp on the fly. There was more water in the pond since I fished two months ago with my mother-in-law. I was surprised with how many tailing carp where just a few feet from the bank. For some reason I had it in my head that the carp would be staging off shore and not interested in feeding, glad I was wrong.
Overall I hooked up with 4 medium size grass carp and landed 3 of them.
This guy was the best take of the entire day. I cast past him and stripped my orange and black Zimmermans Backstabber slowly toward his head. I witnessed the carp stop, turn on his side and bury his head into the silt as he inhaled the fly! A gentile tug on my Sage TCX and zing! went my reel. Oh how I love that sound.
Get out there now! Fall Carp fly fishing is on fire.

For several weeks before the trip I was taking private photography lessons with Skippy at:
I really feel that with his help I have made some progression with my photography, but I am always looking to learn more.
Enclosed are several of the pictures from our trip and I hope you enjoy the view. Now back to some fly fishing!
This special place vibrates with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture and protects the bond between the land and its people. The park also cares for endangered species, some of which exist nowhere else. Come visit this special place - renew your spirit amid stark volcanic landscapes and sub-tropical rain forest with an unforgettable hike through the backcountry.
Haleakala National Park
Mokapu and Ulua are two beaches separated by a nice little snorkel point. This is a nice place for the family, especially if you are staying in the Wailea area.
