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.
