at this fancy goldfish x common carp I caught on fly today. Funny
thing is , I have seen this fish around this section for about 3 or 4 years now.
Its growing about about 3 or 4in a year since I first saw her. This was the first time I had ever had a good shot at it up shallow and feeding though. It had some odd, Mirror like scale patterns on both sides too. I always thought that if I ever feed it a fly that those
big waving fins would certianly handicap it but not so..This fish pulled like a son of a bitch and pulled out all the tricks
with Concrete chunks, wood, weeds, current and undercut banks. With the shitty access I had it was quit the ordeal landing this damn fish. Suprisingly fast
and agil for such an odd creature too!! I'm guessing 12-14lbs..a really thick healthy fish.
Here is another shot ...Fish ate an Egans Headstand
|Dragon flies are thick right now|
Hit this milky blue pond today for two good shots. Blew both!
Yesterday a good friend and I went north about an hour and half. Floated a lower slow moving section of river in kick boats and cast streamers for nada. Pulled out and wade fished farther up stream for a good number of bites nymphing on into the evening. I lost a very repectable Bow! I'm not much of a nympher but I had a blast! We caught a number of pretty little wild Coastal Bows and I ate about a pound of wild berries. It was an interesting morning! Looking forward to getting back up there!
