Going on now! For those of who don’t know. Trevor Tanner of Fly-Carpin.com has put a lot of work into bringing some of the best Carp fly tiers together for another annual Carp fly swap. Check out all the patterns for 2014!
I thought the Gopro would make shooting easier and it does, but getting edited product to youtube has been a night mare. So while I work out the bugs, here’s a little footage to help you understand lower Missouri, and middle Mississippi river drainage prospects, and how to make the most of what you got. The two flies in these videos are the “Black Ops” for the grass carp and weedless “Hammerhead Sculpins”, mostly in dark olive, for the drum. Hopefully these videos give a little more insight into whats in your Midwestern back yard, and what It takes to catch these fish… I will be back soon with a follow up on my favorite fly of 2013….the weedless Hammerhead Sculpin. A great choice for any big fish…from great lakes carp, to large and small mouth bass, to freshwater drum, trout, and even catfish.
and one more blast from the past…. Big shout out to my friend Geoff for reminding me the berries had been dropping for 3 weeks, and that I might want to go check the spot…I only got 1 day of a couple berries falling while I fished….the very last day of the drop! and that’s after no berries the year before due to low water. Thanks buddy, I owe you one!
