I stripped in and timed it just right to drop that leech right in his face and I watched him inhale it LOL. It was awesome! That fish really gave my 8 weight a work out. I have caught them also on small Clouser minnows blind casting, BUT it was a lot of work for a couple of fish. I'd post a picture of the carp on the leech, but I don't see a way to upload it.
Glad to help, thank you! You're absolutely right about watching the fish slurp up the fly. That is truly a rush to see a 20+ pound fish slurp up a size 10 fly, and then take you into your backing.

Caught this fat guy on the Brazos River in Texas while fishing for bluegill. Took 20 minutes to land on my little 4 weight. Wasn't expecting this, but a nice surprise.
