Today was crazy. We were after these:

Then we spotted four fish feeding on a shallow gravel bar. Way too big to be carp, so we snuck in close...turns out they were sturgeon. One was on oversize at probably 8-9 feet long, and three smaller fish. They were rooting and tailing like carp, we figured they had found a clam bed and were going to town. My buddy david chucks a size 8 carp hybrid worm at the nearest fish and the fish flat out ATE that tiny fly. After a good battle, I got the fish's head in my net and tailed him...fly was 100% inside the mouth...just an unbelievable deal.

Never seen anything like it...a tiny carp fly. I should have the close ups off my buddies camera tomorrow of the fly in the mouth...got a shot of Vans with a nice carp too. What a crazy day.
