One broke me off then the next fish came unbuttoned after one of those rapido head shakes and tossed the fly, followed by a couple of ridiculous blown shots. Fishless at this point, I took a breather and sat for about 10 min to clear my head. Watched from there as a fish settled into a strong tail coming at me and got back at it. Over the next hour I was able sneak up on three to close it out. I can not believe how a fun this carp fishing is. I really like the days where you have to earn it. Size was from 18" to about 6lbs on all the fish I put the fly infront of. We STILL have way higher water than normal and it will be late October before I can get on my regular flats. Right now i'm forced to fish isolated flats with lots of smaller fish.
