    Default My First Carp on Fly

    So after reading some more of Sean Mill's stuff about Carp on fly, I thought Iwould go and stalk them this morning.
    08h00.After finding some feeding i follow his instructions and was taken on my second cast. This on my 3/4 wt Fleuger with a Daiwa Lochmor 100A reel. It has never screamed like that before.
    Measured 60cm+ and i guess 3.5 – 4kg.
    With no net it took me 30min to land.

    I've had a carp take a spinner ans swallow it so deep it had to be removed with pliers. It was a normal carp and in a unfished dam. Sadly people have started using the dam more often so I do not think these guys will fall for it again.

    Thanks, but with the exception of this forum and my email, I keep my life off the interwebs.
