    Been a long time since I started fly fishing Carp. Started in my teens and still doing it. Thought I throw up some pics of the Carp we have in Manitoba. They are a blast. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the article and welcome to the group!

    Any tips on hooking up with Redhorse Suckers? My local rivers are silly with them.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    While I prefer a 7wt, I've gotten them on my 5wt often and even a couple on the 4wt.

    With the 4-5 wts I use a straight piece of 8# mono, with the 7wt 15# test (I don't exactly coddle them!)

    The flies already mentioned are all good, depending on where in the water column the fish activity is.

    I find them much more energetic in the summer, now or right at ice out they are fairly lethargic.
    Better a Dragonrider than the Dragon's slave.

    Cliff if you think Carp are finicky the Suckers are worse. I've had my best success with Midge pupa patterns and everyonce in a whils a Caddis emerger will work.

    I've found the exact same to be true. Not sure if they just won't eat the stuff that's large and heavy enough for me to get down to them in current, or if they see me long before I see them and develop lockjaw. One of these seems to be true though.

    Reading this post just restored part of my sanity. I fish mostly saltwater but this past summer we spent a week at Rocking Horse ranch in upstate NY. I spent the week catching largemouth with my 5WT. It drove me crazy to watch kids feed bread to huge, 10-15lb Carp but they wouldn't take anything I threw at them!!! I just about lost my mind, reading this post I now understand why.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.
