Carpe Diem… finally!!!

Carpe Diem… finally!!!

Well I have been trying for a few years to get the right situation to pursue a carp on the fly.  I wiffed an albino carp about 15lbs last year on a t 2wt G*Loomis Stream Dance with 6X tippet that would have been over immediately anyhow!  Finally today, while waiting for a building inspection, I ran over to a lake near the house and hooked two carp.  The first about 15-20 pounds ate the crawdad pattern readily but broke me off in about a minute as I tied to keep him out of the cattails.  The second I saw as he made “a mud”just like a bonefish.  I cast over him and then dropped the crawdad right in front of him, twitched it once  and he ate it with gusto!  Not that big, maybe 5-6lbs but really fun to start off my carp adventure.

This was my first cast  Thursday morning in the same pond as the fish above.  I had sailed thru Denver to a meeting on the north side earlier than expected and had 40 minutes to kill.  The fish was rooting around in 8″ of water and ate the crawdad pattern with a abandon!

Phi Slamma Carpa!
