Fishing Orgasm

This is what you do on trout catch-and-keep opening day. I took Little JD out for about 2.5 hours and we just ambled around a nice carp water. It was a very relaxed setting as far as fishing is concerned, but we did manage to catch this carp, which I believe is actually one of the larger fish in this system. James has aged a bit since I last took him carping, and it really made a difference. Instead of a backpack or stroller, I let him just walk along with me. He seemed to be great with this idea. Admittedly he got slightly bored now and then, but in those cases we'd just stop for a snack, look at pine cones, sticks, etc. or goof off a bit. He was pretty good about not getting too close to the water too, although he really wanted to follow me every step I took. He defintely got excited as this fish was coming to hand.

As for the fishing - I have been scouting for about two weeks now, and I finally found carp in accessible water. I didn't see any tails up at all - every fish I saw was just sunning or slowly cruising. My first few attempts were badly botched by errant casts, but soon I shook off the rust and started placing them better. This fish offered only a very subtle downward head tilt when the fly was taken... another of those hardly-believe-the-fly-was-taken moments that are so outstanding. The fly was the swimming clouser as tied by Zonker from the CAG (thanks!). So we saw a number of carp, fishing as buddies.... and caught one - all we needed.

The addendum though is interesting... and it is in the following picture. I cast to this fish at approx 40 feet (long for me), and believe it or not I was actually able to get about 10 casts inside a 2-foot radius of it, despite wind and distance (surprised myself because I'm known as a bad caster). I was getting pretty excited. In one instance, I was staring at this fish, slowly stripping and pausing the fly in a position that I thought was in front of it... only to have another fish that I never saw slam it while I stripped and break me off! That was a pretty exciting moment because in the confusion I thought for a second that this enigmatic pisces had taken the fly.
