Even though I haven't caught a European Carp on A Fly Rod I've caught heaps whilst Fishing for our Native Fish,a Friend's Son has caught them to 40lbs the are just about everywhere over here.
They were bought in to clean up the Irrigation Canals however they have had The Reverse Effect,They are in most of The Lakes,Private Dams,Rivers & Creeks & it's Illegal to rreturn them,so catch & release is out.
Incidently another guy from Sydney was telling me he had a Phone conversation with Laurie who used to Fish with us & has mooved back to Italy,Laurie was laughiing,he said he went to check out Fishing Spots near where he is living in Italy & he saw signs saying Carp were Protected.

i think the biggst thing to be learned from this thread is to be happy with what you have not only in flyfishing but in life in general.Im sure geoff would love to live five minutes from the yellowstone in montana or on the banks of some spring creek in idaho ,heck i know i would. but unfortuatley for the majority of us that just isnt reality. so we take a couple short road trips each year to whatever water we can get to for a reasonable amount of time and money and make the most of what we have close to home the rest of the time.I fish a few rivers similar to what geoff describes in my home area too(although i am fortunate to have a nice tail water 40 minute away full of wild browns) they arent famous they arent world class hell theyre borderline polluted but they are on the way between work and home and do hold carp sunfish a few smallmouth and chubs and i fish them all summer. sometimes on a cool spring evening when the warmth of the day starts to give way to the cool of the evening i can let my mind wander just a bit and be transported to some wandering river high on the westslope of the rockies.the brightly colored sunfish become small eager brookies, the silvery chubs turn into flashy rainbows and the bigger more stubborn carp of course are bruiser wary browns. the small mouth are surely greenback cutthroats... because they also have green backs. these types of places certainly arent glamorous but for most of us they are our flyfishing reality and we take them for what they are and are glad we have them close at hand. as i type this and its 25 degrees outside with 15 mile per hour winds a warm summer evening wading in water up to my knees passing the time with sunfish and a few small bass while hoping to get a chance at a carp sounds pretty dam good ,and it is ,this in my fishing reality and it aint perfect but im pretty happy to have it.

So earlier this week whilst walking the doggies down there I saw a thing of beauty and glory....soft mud clouds with little orange tail tips gently flapping out of the water. The carp are tailing, the adventure will offically start this weekend.






As long as I get my main floor bathroom mostly renovated ( but seriously, i'll have a day off with no wife or baby...im gonna fish for atleast an hour )

Spring is finally here in MO!!! We almost lost it with 12" of snow a couple weekends ago but its here. Things are budding and turning green, birds are all hot and bothered, annnnnnd I'm on the board for 2013.

Click the image to open in full size.

Sorry about the water spots on the lense, not sure how that got there but yeah, I told my wife today while the kiddo napped I wanted to go catch "a" fish and "a" fish I did catch. I missed 4 or 5 before this guy, I got too excited seeing that vaccum mouth coming down over the fly and pulled away too soon. Alas, all is well and the storm drain adventure continues for another year
