Fishing Report: Aug. 8, 2015

I’m Mickey Anderson from Fish Tech, the unofficial record holder of goldfish on a fly. If you don’t really care about gold fish and you want to catch something a little bit bigger but in the same family. Try carp on a fly rod there’s nothing like it. But you need some different gear. The first thing you are going to need is a bigger rod. This is a rod big enough to land salmon or steelhead and the next thing you are going to need is a big net. You are going to want to scoop them up and get them off of there. You’ve got to find the right fish. The right fish is a fish that is feeding, not a fish that is cruising. You can tell if they are feeding because they are going to be rooting around in the bottom or mudding. They are going to be stirring up the mud or digging their nose down into the moss. You want to throw to the side of it. They spook real easy just from the cast. Let your fly sink and bring it into them as it’s sinking and drop it right by one eye. Make them turn on it and a lot of times they’ll eat it. The eat is just a tiny take. All that it is going to do is just barely wiggle your line. So use a tiny indicator like this or I cut one of these in half and pinch it around my line. You want to strip strike. You do not want to lift the rod. Just a little strip strike. The flies that you are going to want to use are a little different to. They can be colorful or they could imitate something on the bottom. They are rooting around looking for midges, leeches or even go with some of these brighter colors. Carp on a flyrod, what a great fish! Hey if you want help catching carp on your fly rod or any other fish, come on down to Fish Tech and we’ll help you out. Now for tonights fishing line.
