October Pond Fly Fishing14 Oct 2012, Posted by Gone Fishin' in
I definitely prefer the summer over the other three seasons. The days are longer, the temperature is warmer and it just feels like there are more days to fly fish. That being said, no matter the season, any day with fly fishing in it is a great day. I decided to stay close to home and do some warm water fly fishing even though it was not particularly warm out.
My goal was to land a huge carp. You know like the ones you see on Instagram or flyfishforcarp.com. I have tried several times to catch one of those big guys and just like before, no carp for me. No one likes to be skunked and I’m no different, so after trying for the carp I changed it up to see if I could get some bass or bluegill. I found a nice fallen tree in the pond and could see a bunch of bluegill and small bass hangin’ out.
To keep this story short, let me just say the bluegills were all over my little mosquito fly! I could have spent all day there catching those aggressive little fish, but it was getting a little cold and rainy and I had to bring lunch home to the wife. Below are some pictures and short video from my morning.
