Water up, carp mouthing around

Not sure if it's possible to be bored already but wondering if I might be.  I ran into a free period of approx 30 minutes recently.  Had been sighting carp.  They are in the midst of their normal high water spring rite in which they gather in slack water and open-mouth-close-mouth just under the surface.  Occasionally breaking into air with the top of the round mouth.  One good thing about these fish is that they can be taken unawares fairly easily.  You can walk right up to them, slowly...  they are preoccupada and unless you make sudden movements they typically don't bolt.  Even when a hook hangs inches from their faces.  The method is somewhat boring, relative to what you'd call sweet takes, etc.  Fly selection is important.  Can't be too heavy or too big.  A soft hackle with bead chain eyes seems to be about right.  And who knows - certainly I don't - why some of them spook at the fly, some pass it by...   and some take it.  Some take it as they take whatever they are taking.  Some take it more aggressively.  In the case of the fish laying in the sticks below, the fly was charged from a distance of approx 6-8 inches.  That was it.  I didn't have much time and to be honest, much interest in pursuing more of these fish.  If I'd had 22 beers or a whole lot of time, maybe.  But there were no big fish to be seen at all.  Water up and turbid.  Carp mouthing around; really looking pretty content in the easy slack water.  They can be had; they're there if you want to engage.

Carp, never boring, for me. I'd be there the full time you were not allowed. Cool stuff out there!

The takes at distance are more engaging but they are still "all good".

I suppose you guys are right: it's all pretty good. I gravitate toward complaining.

Judging by the abundance of carp in those photos I wouldn’t blame you for getting bored. Maybe you should try venturing into other waters and seeing what else you can catch.

Se ve bien Bueno, creo que sí. A pesar de replicas relojes espana que el modelo original tiene una gran variedad de colores brillantes en el dial y los márgenes del cronógrafo, Breitling no tiene un dial totalmente blanco como este. Mirando este reloj me pregunto seriamente por qué. Veo que los colores combinados con marcadores en su mayoría negro. Esto enfatiza replicas rolex las características únicas del reloj, pero todavía un dial blanco habría cabido a la derecha adentro si usted me preguntaba.

A partir de los cronógrafos, el medio es como en el original, pero los otros dos son marcados diferentes. El resto de replicas breitling los elementos de marcación, marcas, marcadores y manos coinciden y la fecha es entre 4 y 5 horas como la mayoría de los modelos replicas omega. El original, sin embargo, tiene la fecha a las 6 de la mañana por lo que hay una característica más que es diferente en general en los modelos de reloj Breitling Bentley Supersports réplica.
