My Take on Grass Carp

Where I differ slightly is on the Herbivorous part.  From my experience Grass Carp often feed on insects and small fish when given the chance.   Though these fish naturally spend their time grazing on plant matter, drop a small crayfish,  or nymph pattern near their head, strip a couple times and its on!  Often wary of any motion from a floating fly, these fish will take a fly stripped under the surface without much inspection.

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after going
    through some of the posts I realized it’s new to me.

    Nonetheless, I’m certainly delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
