Grass Carp on the Fly


My failed attempts at landing grass carp added a great deal of drama to finally getting my hands on one. Just as Barry and Brad describe in Carp on the Fly -- nymphs catch grass carp. It was all about timing and position. Spotting a cruiser and dropping that #12 pheasant tail in just the right spot where carp is making eye contact with fly. This brute was just shy of 30" and there are a couple bigger pigs in there... could there be a 40" in there?
