Dropped the boat in the local lake for some carp stalking on Saturday. I was out all day and saw lots of fish, but only managed to land one ~ 8 lbs. Had a couple other hits and misses, along with plenty of adrenaline-induced botched casts that left me staring at a cloud of mud and a trail of bubbles :eek: . The weeds have grown so thick in most of my carpin' spots that it was hard to get close and present the fly without spooking the fish. There were also a lot of other boaters on the lake, which made things a little more difficult as well.
