targets of opportunity
 
Found some rising fish yesterday. They are a blast on a light 6wt fiberglass fly rod.
I look pretty worn out in this photo. I had paddled about 6 miles on the FB yesterday and had a time trying to get this fish in the boat. I need a boga!

I bet that was a fun fight!:biggrin:I have always wanted to catch a carp, and that picture makes me want to catch one even more

Troutman that is a nice catch. Is there nothing you want attempt on glass. Congrats, that just proves you do not have to have some space age graphite to catch good fish.:eek::smile:

Hey Flyred, glad to see you survived the bad storms that rolled through Bama last week.
I had my little 6.5ft lami glass 3wt with me, caught a few little smallies early in the day,

But decided not to push my luck with it on the carp!
Would hate to have a busted mtn. rod for my upcoming spring break trip next week!

Hey Gary,
What is that you are fishing out of?

Nice!
 
Very nice catches troutman! I have got to get into one of those carps! Ive been told my 8wt 9ft'er will do nicely.

Travis , its an inflatable kayak.

Big popper, An 8wt with definitely work well. I still fish one when the wind is up or throwing really heavy flies. Luckily, this day the wind was pretty calm.

Love the carp pic, the FB has some unbelievable carp fishing on it, especially around some of the islands.
