Overview

Carp are tantalizingly close, no matter where you are. They will challenge you technically, test your patience, and make you question your fly-fishing bona fides more than any other freshwater fish. And they get really big; they'll put you into your backing fast. As Trout Unlimited's Christ Hunt writes in this foreword, "Enjoy the journey that comes with fly fishing for carp. And leave your 4-weight home." Sporting nicknames like the golden bonefish, carp are finally getting the attention they deserve from U.S. fly rodders. Trout Magazine editor Kirk Deeter meets these nonnative fish head-on, examining their history, behavior, diet, and the challenges, they pose for even the most accomplished fly fisher. Covering everything from the approach, the presentation, how to effectively read both fish and water ? even recipes for the best patterns to throw ? Deeter introduces the most prolific freshwater gamefish to an audience finally ready to stalk them.
