First fly carp

Today I went to my carp quarry in hopes of my first fly rod carp. The first one I seen I plopped the crayfish immitation (poorly tied at that) and bang, first carp. He was only about 15 inches long, but never the less, a carp. Then things got tough. I managed to catch two more, but the only flies they'd hit were small nymphs (a march brown and a scud pattern if memory serves me), and the flies had to be put right in front of them or they'd swim away. Confusing critters these carp.

Awesome!

Way to go! Carp are a great challenge on the fly rod. They've been doing their spawning routine here so I haven't been fishing for them lately.
