Episode #3--When To Set The Hook

Recommended Posts

Episode #3 of Lessons from the Carp Lodge has been posted on YouTube.

Transitioning out of the close quarter, early season fishing for Carp seems to bring a problem for me every year. This episode shows the problem and the solutions.

This episode demonstrates when to set the hook by showing a Carp clearly moving to eat a real bug and then moving to eat the fake. I personally really like this particular segment because you can clearly see the fish make a decided move to snatch up a meal and do exactly the same thing to pick up the Chocolate Cherry. No red arrows are needed at all.

You will see a Mirror Carp decide that I am ugly. What can I say?...

Casting and stripping are the techniques used to get the fly on the Carp's dinner plate in this episode.
