Tough, windy day on the flats today, but managed to stick a small common. First carp of 2012.
On a Mean Ol' Dirty Frisco, no less. The carp tracked it down from over a foot away in stained, almost muddy, water. I hope this means the larger profile of this fly, as opposed to my usual PT, is easier for the fish to see in murky water. The PT often will not draw a take unless you drop it right on the carp's nose. Or at least within a few inches. One carp doesn't mean anything of course, but the MF'er may have some promise.
