Sumbitch. I went to a big private pond that I have permission today. It was the wrong time of day (sun up high and hot, but I caught a few fairly large catfish on the 5 weight, besides the usual bluegill. The second cat was big enough to take a picture and post, so of course I hauled out my Pentax and it said "battery deleted" or something like that.

Then I saw some carp nosing around. I tried for them with a black beetle, but they just came up and nosed it. Then I put a small spit shot onto the leader, sunk the foam beetle just under the surface, and a big ol' carp came up and sucked it in. I got him in. He was about 2 feet long. I don't know how much he weighed, but it was a tussle.

After getting him in, I remembered that my camera battery was dead. Sumbitch.

I'm now charging the battery, planning on getting to the pond at a better time tomorrow and seeing if the carp will co-operate again. Those suckers fight really well. There were ones in there much bigger -- maybe 30 inches, I swear.

Carp are great fun on a fly :) Definitely take some pictures.

That is what your camera on the phone is for...when the real camera don't work.
