When Fly Fishing for Grass Carp, You Just Have to Play the Game

fly fishing for grass carp

Fly fishing for grass carp just isn’t as easy as this looks. 

There are a lot of fish you can chase around with a fly rod that can be considered easy to catch. However, fly fishing for grass carp isn’t considered easy by anyone. As you are about to see, Drew LooknFishy just has a knack for catching this slack water behemoths. He does describe how finicky these fish are with a knowledge that only true hard core experience can teach.

He isn’t kidding when he says a bird flying over the water can spook them. They are literally that sensitive to the slightest of changes to their environment.

To this day, I have spent an insane amount of time fly fishing for grass carp. I have yet to chase one on a kayak, but I have hot-footed it around many a pond in search of these fish. I can say without a question I have spooked way more than I have ever had an opportunity to catch. Drew is onto something with the frequency that he catches these fish. As far as I’m concerned, he is a Wizard of grass carp.
