In our quest to challenge ourselves with new and different species, we have decides that
we will take on the challenge of learn to stalk and learn to catch Carp. The key word being stalk
and learn. Although we have ourselves outfitted better with the rods and a few better flies, we are now armed with bit more knowledge on the wily fish after spending the day on the water with a
very knowlgable carp expert. The basis out our day was to learn more basics on the behavioral traits,
feeding tetteritoris in both the lakes and the river, casting, leader, tippet and flies. Of course, like any
your not going to get all the goods in one trip or session, but it was certain enough to fill my feeble little mind with enough information and tactics.
I know one thing, if i can get skilled enough to catch these fish, most others will be childs pay comparatively.
We were able you use our Adipose to search and cast as some willing participants on the lake, and the
boat worked terrific, now outfitted with a new trolling motor, but the Adipose Poling Adapter platforms might be a Christmas present.
After the lakes, we hit some spots on the South Platte River, that were loaded with feeding active Carp, but my unlike Stealthyness, sent them into the middle of the river on the first stop. I would soon learn the big ole' flatfishes , had not Stealth, and Carp Fishing would be a little tougher.
Both Mary and cast to hundreds of fish, but either spooked them, cast too far, drift went over them,
drift hit them, what ever the case was, WE GOT SCHOOLED
But we had one of the best days of the year fishing. Ca't wait to gat back at it.
