Default Re: First carp of 2014 for me

Seeing the fish is crucial out here. In ten years of chasing them on the big C I have only "felt" 3 takes. You just aren't going to catch them blind because they won't chase a fly. You have to spot the fish and get the fly within about 4-8 in inches and then see the eat. Thankfully, the water is pretty clear and I get a lot of targets. Usually the early spring fish are as easy as they get, once they spread out onto the gravel bars they are a lot tougher. Pretty cool fishery.
