Well done, it's great to go after something a bit different. I did occasionally fish for Carp n the U.K. During the summer months. Used a fly called the dog biscuit, basically spun deer hair. Great off the top action

SAY HAY BIRD! Saw and just responded to your PM. Answered my own question on your present location. This is a good thing you're that far away, the SPCA is looking for you for raising so much havoc with Rogue Steelhead.

This guy was a 'machine' with a fly rod in his hands! Speaking of which, the fishing, and catching, is some of the best in years here on the upper Rogue at the moment.

Do you have anything else? Catfish? Drum? I think that catfish and drum are a similar fight. I've had a lot of fun catching them both.

Hookin' 'em is the trick!

Keep doing that, and you'll be just fine.

Update:

No carp to report on here: I managed to hook onto one last week and for the first time was able to see an aggressive carp chase the fly and eat it.


The three hook ups before this one I'm talking about were different; the bites were all pretty heavy and immediate.

The one I hooked onto last week was such a subtle bite that it reminded me of hooking onto flounder (or fluke???) out in saltwater.

if I had not been able to see it chase the fly, I probably would not have been able to set the hook. sadly, it took off after about 30 seconds.

I'm sad to say that the tournament I entered in is over on Saturday and due to my work schedule (back to school) I won't be able to try and hook onto any in the last couple of days leading up to the deadline. Oh well, it's been one hell of a summer chasing these fish and have made me a much better fly fisher (or so I'd like to think)

tight lines,
