1st Mirror on the fly

Recommended Posts

Guest Eric Kol

Hey all,

had some time this afternoon so I decided to pester some poor carp with my flys. I had three takes, one common and two mirrors. Landed one and it is my first mirror on the fly! Funny, I have been fishing this spot for 2-3 years now, mostly during spring/spawn. Other than a real nice koi, I have never seen mirrors here...that is untill last week. I had a mirror take and get off after a second or two. Then today I had two takes by Mirrors. I'll be interested to fish the area with bait too and see what else I can turn up!

John, your on. Spring is an awesome time to fish up here with the flyrod. Waters I thought were devoid of carp have come alive during spawn.

I am seriously glad to hear they hang out together, all racial implications aside. I suppose with the mutation or recesive gene, all it takes is one in a breeding population to start the wheels in motion for higher numbers in the population. I guess I really have no idea, but it seems likely.....and I'm hoping to land a few more from this area to see how similar and dissimilar the scale patterns are.

Nice mirrors :D

Louis brings up a good point, more than once in my carp fishing I'd gone thru 100's of commons in a row over the course of a year w/o a mirror and then suddenly turned up back to back mirrors.
