Re: grass carp flies?
One of the "name" tyer/anglers at a show I went to told the story about staying at a hotel that had a pond with carp every year on the circuit. Every year he'd go down throw a few casts to no avail. The he noticed the carp eating the clippings being blown into the pongd as it was being mowed. He went back to his room and whipped up a "grass fly" out of a green scrub pad. Success!
