March 25th Carpin

Carp on the fly rod flies for sale

The Blind Squirrel takes another

 

It was a beautiful overcast morning.  I arrived at the lake just before sun up.  As soon as I tied one on I could see a fish cruising the apron of the lake.  I shortly decided that weight was too much for these fish and tied on a blind Squirrel.  Several delicate presentations later… Fish on!  And then another.  I wanted to get some testing in so I tied on a Mexican Standoff.  I cast beyond a fish on the apron and brought the fly into view.  Hook up and bust off all at once.  When the fish takes and he’s pointed away from you, that’s a likely bust off scenario on lighter tippet as was the case.  I then tied on a worm pattern and had two takes but I couldn’t set the hook. Hmm, I’ve got some worm tweaking to do.
