:beathead: As suggested earlier in the post, fishing for "Grass Carp" (Ctenopharyngodon idella) is a violation of fishing regulations unless there is a special opening. You can, however fish for the "Common Carp" (Cyprinius carpio) in this state. They are widespresd. There is a very good book entitled Carp on the Fly by Barry Reynolds, et al. You might want to order it from Amazon if you're serious about fishing for carp. It has a section on flies in it. Seems to me it was about $15.00 and read the regulations. It might save some money and embarassment.
