First Carp on the fly

A friend and I hit some Carp water today so he could stick his first. Common Carp aren't that common in South Florida so this was a good chance to get out there. Over all kind of tough. They always get a little wierd around the moon but we still managed a pretty good number of fish considering we didn't get started till about 1:30.  Like always, and littereally from coast to coast, I always have a good time on the water with Paul. Maybe we can get a crack on some Stripers before he heads back east.

It is odd that although Florida is probably the best fly fishing state from a variety standpoint, they don't have many commons.

So, the variety state may be Ca.! That was nice, good for your pal!

Thanks Carlos. Hopefully that cold and snow will break up and pull some carp shallow for you.

I adapt to S Fla fishing in a like a day Trevor! I couldn't live there year round but spent time fishing there has me wondering if I can pull off retiring there for atleast part of the year!
