  1. Tony, it's wonderful that your daughter enjoys fishing with you. I hope she stays with it. Mine is getting to where she can finally sort of reel in a few bream once I hook them for her, and even a few on the fly rod, but she's a long way from being able to reel in a carp. I'm sure you were kidding about the down side thing, but I enjoy helping my loved ones catch fish and even outfish me, more than I enjoy catching them myself. I haven't caught a single carp this year. I only started catching these monsters out of this place in fall of last year, as they weren't biting in the warmer months, b
  2. Thanks! I'll look into it. That's exactly the kind of place this is. It would be interesting to see if they could be fooled with it.
  3. I would definitely be interested in trying one of those flies. I'd like to see if it would fool those carp, because they are quite discerning and fixated on bread. The same time I was tossing bread out to them I also threw out several pieces of popcorn and I watched this same carp come up, inspect a couple of pieces of popcorn and actively refuse to eat it! They are mighty picky! Plus I haven't seen these fish feeding on the surface before or since that one week, although I only started fishing there this summer after it was good and hot. I'm hoping I will go over there at the right time this
  4. Wow, thanks a lot! The other guys here had some great catches too and were every bit as deserving of the gold. Congrats! I wish I had known how to catch carp when I was their age. There is no telling what kinds of great catches they'll be making, because the ones they showed us here were awesome and these two guys have a lot of great fishing ahead of them. I wish I had been able to get a better photo of that fish, but I was all alone, pumping adrenaline, and my arms were like noodles after fighting that fish on my fly rod. I wasn't thinking too well at that point, because that was easily the
  5. Yes hopefully we'll have a warm spell and we can get out again. If it gets into the 60s one weekend day and I have time we'll be fishing and hopefully you can join us. I am really excited about what the new year could have in store. I hope when spring comes around I'll find these fish feeding on the surface again like I did that first time, because I'd love to catch another on my fly rod.
  6. Thank you! By the way, I meant to say I caught this carp over the holidays, on Dec. 27th.
  7. Hi all, I'm new here and it's a bit late for this post I suppose, but I just wanted to share my final carp of 2014. This was my first year trying carp fishing and it was really tough at times - almost depressingly difficult - but very rewarding at other times. I caught some big fish this year - the biggest fish of my life. I'm very much looking forward to doing it more in 2015. Hopefully I'll be out again doing it the first warm spell we get on a weekend afternoon. I caught this one on what I guess a lot of folks call a pay lay rig, on a #8 hook with a wad of hamburger bun on my hook. I guess
  8. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum, been lurking around a bit, and needmotime2fish had asked me to join up a while back, and I thought it was about time I did. I just started carp fishing this year and I'd like to submit a few of my catches to the contest if you don't mind. It's been an interesting year for me, chasing the carp. The first outing I had was in the pouring rain on a cold January morning. All I brought for bait was some loaf bread that I quickly realized was too dry to stick to my hook! So I started fishing with just anything else I could troll around in my kayak. I went to a sp
