Dirty Water Carp

Small Stripers in the morning until the wind became unmanagable. Stopped off at a small back water on the way home for a couple of Carp. Tailers were working the likely spots and after looking at www.flycarpin.com and Trevor's thoughts on egg patterns I might have to play around with it. These fish are in ectreme shallow water and spooky as hell. The soft landing might just be the ticket on these bait pressured fish.

I hit a small farm pond close to home the other evening that has always been excellent for nice Gills but I couldn't get anything to go the except small Crappie on dries. Strange becouse I have never caught Crappie here in the past. Whatever, atleast the Ticks were absent.

Those shallow water tailers drive me crazy sometimes.
