I'm more intrigued than ever about sight casting for carp after Sunday afternoon, since I had some turners and followers among big fish, but no hookups. Maybe someone can help me on fly selection and presentation. I've heard of the blackberry imitation, but it's too early in the year for berries if there were any overhanging this pond. A #10 pheasant tail -ignored. A #10 gray ST nymph- some interest. A #12 sort of olive woolly worm with chain eyes -turn and follow. I think I had fish wiskering it because I'd see the end of the line twitching when they were following, but no hookups. It seemed like the unweighted nymphs didn't attract as much attention as the bead eyed, which sank slowly. The chain eye woolly worm looks hilarious to me. It looks a lot like a Simpsons character. The carp are hard to sneak up on and easy to spook. Exciting and challenging. Once I was carefully stalking through the grass, getting lined up for the perfect cast, and a punkinseed grabbed the fly when it accidentally dangled and flushed everything to the other end of the pond. The LM bass however were not easily scared. Sometimes they'd boldly jump out to grab a wiggle bug or clouser right under my rod tip. My attention was diverted to sight casting to the bass that were clearly visible and easier to fish than the carp. I had a nice bluegill grab the same flo pink and white clouser that caught the palmateo in Aruba. I thought I had a bass. This was near the mouth of the Klickitat on the Columbia. It is a nice diversion until the Klickitat opens in just ten days .
