Default First Carp on a fly!

Ok so my persistance finally paid off! Hooked up with this guy this weekend in some local ponds. First carp I have ever had on a fly! Sad thing is as he was on the line, another much bigger one was rolling in the water about 30ft away! Had a blast!

Great Job ! tough time of year to get a carp to take a fly. The ones I've pursued up here near Boulder are much more interested in each other than my flys.

Again, good job !
