First Carp of 2012
Lovely spring day left inspired me to leave work at 15.30 and get a couple of hours in. Fished for Carp on fly today as very few trout were moving or showing any signs of interest. Unfortunately I didn't have any bread so just had to use an opportunist cast of my bread fly to a surface feeding fish. This is no easy task as few fish come to the surface without a food source and when they do pop up they are incredibly fussy. I must have had 10 or so takes with only one conversion - a nice little 2lb fish which was good sport on my little XFlite. The lake was cloudier than ever as the larger fish were spawning in the shallows. Wonderful evening with Primroses covering some of the banks and plenty of birdsong.
