This is my second carp caught on the fly. I was walking to another area, looked down and saw him tailing in about five feet of water. I made a cast, let the fly sink, he shrugged and made his way toward the fly, I guessed and set the hook. Fish on.
This was my first carp caught on the fly. Same trip to the Medina River. We walked over a hill and could see him cruising. I made a perfect cast, stripped twice, saw his lips extend, set the hook and all hell broke loose. I fought him around a pool for a few minutes.
