The Carp like it hot..

Evening session. Increasingly darker nights now mean evening is restricted to a couple of hours. Relatively busy tonight with two others around the lake. The carp seemed to come on the feed after a warm late summers day shutting off at about 8.00pm when the trout started to rise. Takes were more positive and a wide gape hook with thumb nail sized sponge fly doing the trick. First fish I lost and then a beautiful 1/2lb common carp came to the net after being somewhat bullied to the net on my 9wt rod. This was followed by my best carp on the fly to date at around 8lb. Finished up with a nice little 2lb common. No trout tonight despite several rising to free bread offerings.
