Default Caney Surprise

I've hit the Caney a few times lately and have done very well. The fish are healthy and relatively plentiful which is always nice to see. On Thursday I headed down with a friend and we caught a bunch of chunky 'bows on the usual flies. A few fish were rising to sporadic caddis and craneflies which was a nice bonus compared to the usual midge and nymph fishing.

The highlight of the day for me was finally catching carp out of a spot I've tried to catch them at for a long time. I've caught some other carp on the river but this spot has always been tough for me. Finally I was able to check it off the list but I'll be back for sure. These fish are a lot of fun on the fly! The scary thing about this fish is that it is definitely one of the smaller ones!

"Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.'" Matthew 4:19
