  1. Huge carp on fly

    Franky you are right, it is the same tight line technique we use for trout except it was sight casting in shallow rapids to tailing carp. We use a technique known as mono (monofilament) nymphing, which is no fly line on the reel, just backing attached to an 11 foot self-constructed nymphing leader with hi-vis strike indicator line. We use a 3 fly team with the dropper on the bottom.
  2. Huge carp on fly

    Hi and good day from sunny South Africa, we are a group of four 20 odd year old passionate fly fishermen and we fish all over South Africa for any fish that will take a fly! Please check out this carp that member Kevin Snyman caught on Friday in the Vaal river in Gauteng province. This 12kg (26 pound) bull of a carp was hooked and landed in a 40 min fight on a 5-weight rod! We do a lot of fresh water river angling for Trout, yellowish, barbell and carp. Please feel free to check us out on YouTube (Uncharted Fly Fishing). Kev used a self tied black nymph and he was using a type of polish nymphing technique which seems to work best in this particular river.
