Nice job fellas.


The story is that some monks back in the day (the day being some time in the 1300's) selectively bred common carp to produce a large beefy fish with few scales . In other words - a mirror carp.

I think we can all agree these men were visionaries.

Thanks guys.




On a related note June is apparently mirror carp month, judging from this and this. And this.

Love me some mirror carp!

I hope to catch one tomorrow. Nice fish Ty, glad to see that. Actually, I hope to catch a fish period to be more accurate.

Good stuff here on the crap--I read a post the other day about a carp hitting an Egg Sucking Leech on top, and the guy landed the crap---might want to give this a try. Thanks for sharing

I like the idea of June being mirror carp month...that's a holiday I can get behind. Guess I'll have to get out and try to do my part in partaking in the celebration!

Ty said...

I noticed you have a thing for mirror carp, John. But then, heck, I guess we all do.

Right on Gregg. Looking forward to your report. Lemme know how you do.

Thanks Bill. I actually have some Egg-sucking Leech flies. Might have to get them a try. And man, you keep spelling carp wrong! Gotta work on that.

Hmmmm, High Plains, we may be on to something here. A holiday for mirror carp. I like it.

Wow, that dude has a funky pattern. Those two lonely scales on the side are cool. And what is up with all the mirrors lately?

Ty said...

Yeah, he was a pretty cool fish. Wish I had a decent camera. Those photos don't do much for him.

No disrespect to the carp--sorry about that.

Ty said...

Ha ha, no worries Bill! I know you're just kidding around with us Carpheads. All in good fun, my man!
