Carp! Eeew, gross, why?
Well at last nights meeting we had Uncle Fuzzy from Westfly come down and speak to our club about fly fishing for Carp.
Considered a “trash fish” in the United States but in Europe it is apparently a top fish and one of the best fish to catch on a fly according to our presentation.
Carp are harder to catch this trout, Uncle Fuzzy said. They are more cautious, they are lazy (so not feeding constantly) and are very selective to when they feed.
Carp do best in waters over 52 degrees and like slow moving or silty muddy waters. They put up a greater fight than Steelhead.
Okay, honestly this presentation took me by surprise, but I can honestly say I Will not purposely go fly fishing for carp. 🐠🐠🐠🐠
