First Carp of the year

I got skunked four times but finally had some success.

Last friday it was near 70 in minneapolis so I took the afternoon off and tossed flies at the carp in my neighborhood pond/creek pool.

It was only a couple of pounds but there were over 50 nice carp sunning along the shore of a small pool. They are trapped in there and offer great sport all summer long.

When the water heats up they work the shallow flats like tailing bones or redfish. I improved my presentation skills greatly last year casting to carp doing so in this pool and a couple of others in my favorite streams nearby.

Go out and catch some carp.
