Carp on the Fly Video Seminar
I will be presenting a "how to", Carp on the fly, video seminar at the Bellevue Orvis Store on Sunday, July 22. We will be starting at noon. Parking is easy on Sunday. There will be lots of time for questions and answers. I hope to see you there.
Here is an excerpt from an email sent to me by Craig who attended one of my recent Carp on the fly seminars.
"I am happy to announce I have caught my first CARP; landed on a 6wt and took the fly (black cherry) out of his mouth. WOW!! He was about 24” long and beautiful; yellowish green with different sized scales and long whiskers. The fishing process (stalking, casting to the dinner plate, and body movement indicating a “take”, was exactly as you described. This is hard work. I was in knee deep water with a mud bottom, ugh. I could see the back and side of the carp, but not their mouth. But when I saw the slight body twist I recognized it and set the hook. He erupted from the water splashing me in the process, and, took off. Ah, the carp song… ZZZZZZZZ..ZZZZZ..zzz.zzz He would not fit in my trout net..."
Thanks for the email Craig. I am pleased that you were able to hook up after just two trips. Good for you!
