My Introduction to Fly Fishing for Carp / JULY 9 2014

I finally jumped on board the carp-wagon and caught my first on a fly-rod. With some guiding by Mr. Larson, I landed my first carp using a mulberry pattern on the Columbia. I can definitely see myself engaging in this type of fly fishing again in the future. Despite my feelings about the presence of this invasive species in the Columbia basin, catching carp on the fly is crazy fun!
