Local Carp


No trout fishing since June 1.  Few instances of chasing cyprinids in prep for Lake Michigan.  And for general quality engagement.


Went back to the boys' natal river.  We had about one hour and a decent group of carp.  First thing my son did was break his rod.  This mirror was dapped upon from above; moved down and out of my cone of vision; the take was blindly intuited; I picked up and she was on.  Stone-cold eat of LOD.  We did not scale but I say 11-13 lbs.  Pretty and dark fish.

For reference here is a really small mirror caught blind nymphig from the same system (downstream a ways) on June 10,  2006.

Another local carper put me a new entry point for some old water.  Great little concentration point for fish.

These fish were showing different moods.  One trio was hanging with heads together.  I set a fly in the middle and it was like statues coming alive.  The biggest fish did not get there first though.


Some wet wading in nutrient-rich waters with silt bottom was money on this day.  The Heron.  He knows how to chase a cat up in a tree.

Good for you. Like seeing that mini-mirror and then the fullsize version. Not the same fish, I suppose?

Broken rods suck.

Different waters and many years between the two mirrors. The little one is bookended by two dams and thus pretty well locked into that water. Same with the big one, but different frame.

I appreciated looking back at the old pic and remembering that fly... the yarn worm on DB eyes. Good fly. Basically the FYI that I submitted to one of the carp swaps.
