It was so calm and sunny today I had to go see if I could catch a carp. Found a few but they were very sluggish. They didn't want to move even when I walked right along the shore 5' away. I couldn't get these guys to hit, but I did finally have another fish hit and miss and another hooked and landed :cool:

Looks like one of those would be a good hook up....I haven't caught a carp on the fly yet....I have seen them tailing in the river I fish most....what type of flys work for carp?

Best Fly's for carp I've found:

San Juan Worms, a variety of Czech nymphs (usually in moving water), wooly buggers and thin shimmy leeches in red and olive and black, and my favorite (and this usually causes quite a fuss, ill leave it to your own discretion), what I call a sasko which is simply white deer hair flared and cut into a tightly packed ball or square. I usually land it pretty hard witch gets the fishes attention. Deadly combo is a sasko and a San Juan dropper... :devil: its evil!!

Have fun...
