Here is my blog from my best carp fly session ever, I haven’t been out for carp in a while but will be going tomorrow to see if I can smash this PB!
so sit back and have a read I hope you enjoy this little issue of my fishing!
The session was meant to start at 7:00 when the fishery opened but after my buddy made a massive mess and pulling me around about 3 shops to find dog biscuits but finally we found them and we were off, after picking the swim we baited up little and often with dog biscuits and bread. The dog biscuits highly outfished bread despite both working on different days.
My bud was picking up decently sized fish all day on a float rod and my baby only came in the last hour before having to leave for work. She was a perfectly scaled shiny gold common and took about7-8 runs before finally coming to the net and almost spooled me took me right down into backing like a salmon loved every minute despite waking up with a massive arm ache and wanting to cut my arm off it was spectacular.
once letting her rest in the net I packed up and went to work but was a fantastic way to start the day. she went 13lb wish I could have gotten a bigger one so back out tomorrow!
If you’d like to see the fight and the method I used to catch this beauty I will link the video here. Thanks guys!
