    Default FINALLY my FIRST carp

    So after countless hours of casting to these fish, I went out today and actually landed my first.

    It was a good day. I had about 4 more takes and one busted my 10lb line and took off with my flies.

    Pretty cool to see the carp chase and take the fly. Just gotta work on setting the hook.

    You ever find yourself in Houston, don't ignore our bayou!

    Oh nice, a grassie to boot! Don't be scared to step up your leader, we use 15 and 20lb without even thinking around here.

    Congrats. Funny how what was once a trash fish has become such a sporting fish. Look forward to catching my first on a fly next time I visit my parents.

    Honestly it's come full circle... They'd not be here if it wasn't for the high demand in their tasty flesh prior to the 20th century...

    Do You mind describing what your leaders look like and what knots you use?

    Mine started with a 5ft section of like 30lb and then I tied on a 2ft section of 10lb.

    Cant remember exactly what the knot is called right now that I had on.

    Thanks!

    Congrats! I've never fished with a fly for carp. I'll be trying that this summer.
