Default Re: Today's carp report

Their really unpredictable as to what they will eat. I'd guess Ive hooked between 30 and 50 carp over the last few years and 90% have been on a damselfly nymph or dragonfly nymph. They are very wary, so I tie my flies wth a fair amount of realism. I have had pretty good luck on carp that are lazy and sunning by carefully pesenting one of these nymphs in front of them. If theyre actively feeding, they take them pretty boldly.
They can be frustrating!... All the more rewarding!
