Blood, Sweat, and Tears with a side of Mosquitos

After getting a taste of new and highly productive carp water I had the urge to pursue once again the largest and smartest carp I’ve ever thrown a fly at. Needless to say they lived up to their reputation once again. These fish are really one of a kind, you can get them to look at your fly all day but never a take…I don’t even know how I managed to catch that Koi out of there, the Koi are even smarter. The Koi don’t even look at your fly half the time, at least the carp cruise up to it and swim around it like a shark staring it down only to refuse it at the last second. Even though I only caught one of these fish in the past there is something that keeps bringing me back…

9 of the Smartest Carp...EVER...

Virtually No Backcast Room

Sorry the reservoir I fish is holds the smartest fish on the planet, I can let you have second if you wish??!Ha!!

They run to just under 40 lb and only a few come out every season, on bait. Maybe 100 fish in 20 acres. Like your canal no back cast and high sided. I have only taken two from this place. A 28 mirror and a 29 common. I keep creeping back to an easy water with my tail between my legs after a few blanks.
Great blog well done on the difficult Koi.
