Yes, You Can Catch Grass Carp on the Fly

grass carp on the fly

If you fly fish for carp, grass carp on the fly are the ultimate test of the trash fish. 

I live on a pond. It just so happens that pond is full of grass carp. One of those carp in particular is a state record but I only see it a few times a year and when I do, it is streaking like a torpedo in other direction. Come to think of it, grass carp are terrible. I fly fish for them almost daily and average about five or six of them a year. Trying to chase down a grass carp on the fly is one of the hardest fish I’ve ever pursued. Perhaps that is why I keep coming back to try again.

In this video, you are about to see how easy some people can make chasing grass carp on the fly look. Personally, I find this video loathsome and inspirational at the same time. It just goes to show that catching a grass carp a fly rod can be done.

Yeah.. so there’s that. If you have tried to present to a grass carp, you know just how terrible it can be. As a matter of fact, I’m probably going to be picking up a paddle board just so I can get a better angle at these stupid fish to hopefully up my odds.

Nice video, Drew LooknFishy. From now on, I shall call you Master.
