Whodda thunk it? Korea as a fly fishing tourist destination!
That video got me charged up alright. The only time I've seen gulpers like that was at Hebgen and in the pond out back when the grass clippings get thrown in from the riding mowers. It drives the grass carp in there nuts!
Great video! What I wouldn't give to have that sort of action around here!

On another note, slack cost the guy with the cowboy hat on a number of fish in the first parts of that video. By the end it looks like he caught on to his hook-up problem.

Just don't seem right - fishing for a fish with a bread fly.

Course, I got a fish on my bucket list you need an algae glob fly to fish with. But at least it's supposed to resemble 100% natural ocean grown globs of algae and not something made in a bakery intended for a good ham sandwich.

Ummm... After this morning's news, any trips anywhere Korea are "on-hold", at least for me! It's strange how fishing always seems to transcend politics. I've talked to a number of vets who managed to find a way to wet a line, even while wearing BDU's & a flack-jacket.

Anyway, this is a great thread. Korea is somewhere that I would never have thought of as a fishing haven, and carp certainly not a game fish that I would have pursued, but it's great when something like this opens your eyes to something different!

He went on to say that people feed these carp bread so the carp FF guys use flies that resemble pieces of bread. Makes sense. He quickly obliged me by tying a couple of the "Bread" flies. See below.

Pretty strange but it makes complete sense to tie flies that resemble the bread hatch.

Anyways, it was a great day in Korea and me and my daughter had a great lunch.

I caught my first Carp on a "bread" fly! About 5 years ago I took the kids to a horse ranch for a week. There were Bass and HUGE Carp on the lake that the kids fed bread all day long. I had a great time catching Bass but kept seeing these huge Carp cruising along. I threw everything I had in my flybox with no luck. I finally stripped an old fly, got some sewing thread from the front desk and tied a cigarette filter to the hook and the next morning I caught my first Carp.

Dan,

No. Milkfish. They look a lot like bones but get 4 or 5 feet long. It's a Southern Pacific specie.

I know but desperate times call for desperate measures! It's all I had to work with. If I had known about the flip-flip fly back then someone at the pool would have lost a shoe...

At one of the FF expos I went to here one of the luminaries on the bill told a story about how the hotel where he stayed every year on the circuit had a pond with huge carp, but he'd never been able to hook any. He happened to be out by the pond while it was being mowed and saw the carp eating the clippings blowing on to the surface. Went back to his room and tied a "grass fly" from a green scrub pad and, Wa Lah, started catching carp.
