Wat is the best approach for fly carping?

Recommended Posts

You can do everything right in the wrong place and still not catch anything, you can screw up a lot of stuff in the right spot and catch fish. I drive around most weeks and look at water and look for fish and take temperatures. I prefer to sight fish, so if I don't see fish, I don't even get the line wet. Wish that some of the older threads on technique hadn't fallen off the face of the earth of bulletin board. Scouting is a good thing.

I do a fair amount of scouting and have found spots that typically hold feeding fish. I then go to these places when the sun is high and is behind me as I stalk the fish. However, I went to one such spot yesterday but the wind was high and a good chop was on the water. The chop made it next to impossible to spot the fish. There were some carp jumping so I knew they were there. I decided to fish blind by casting out and slowly retrieving my san juan worm. I was rewarded with a fish, although most of my other carp I have caught have been sight fished. The first thing to do is get rid of any bias you have against carp being trash fish because I know I have a much easier time catching other species such as bass, walleye and pike than I do catching carp. Keep working at it and you will be greatly rewarded!!
