The river was pretty clear for a change. Burries were still falling and fish were still eating them.

Started late. The air temp. according to the Jeep was 91 at 2:30. I waited for that to maybe cool some. By the time I got to the river it had dropped to 86. Big improvement :o

Caught a lot little catfish this evening.

Missed a carp while I was fighting a carpenter ant that had ventured up the leg of my shorts. I'm just not that tough. Probably should have held my stance. Just wasn't strong enough I guess.

Had a nice one reject the fly. Finally one came into range that was ready and willing. Couple of cast and misses later he didn't spook and I scored.

Sorry for the photo quality.

Two old guys that were looking for a spot to bait fish watched me from the top of the bank as I hooked it.

Old Guy: That's a nice carp
Me: Thank you :D
Old Guy: What did you catch him on?
Me: Fly
Moment of disbelief

As I was trying to land it.

Old Guy: Do you need some help?
Me: Na I got it.

As leaving before I netted it.
Old guy to other Old Guy2: I believe his nets to small.

I'm totally jealous. I cannot catch those carp (except one that fell for a sunken foam beetle the other day). They are completely ignoring me. They are driving me crazy.

I have to take my broken guitar into the next big town to get the electronics fixed tomorrow, then play a gig tomorrow evening. They have promised me a loaner guitar if my Alvarez cannot be fixed in time.

Maybe I'll hit the carp again on Saturday day, or maybe I'll go hiking/rock climbing/brook trout fishing with the 3 weight. I dunno.

The carp are pretty and big but they sure can stink up the car (via the net). Nothing like the smell of carp slime and scales on a hot summer day. :o
Brad claims he washes the net out in the river. :shock:

Melanie,

That carp stink is a new line of cosmetic perfume called Eau De Livewell :mrgreen:
