I had this idea last summer. Every evening, canadian geese would flock into the shallows that would be filled with carp the next morning. I wondered if the carp were actually feeding on the goose droppings. I also observed in a different pond, a carp and a turtle working over a goose nest. So I tried this imitative goose poop pattern. But no carp liked this fly. Hypothesis rejected. But it's as important to report negative results as positive to promote progress and to reduce repetition of mistakes.
right on. it reminds me of an article i read about a catfish guide in the southeast. in the cypress groves, there was a large nesting colony of cormorants. he used a modified plastic/rubber lure that he meade to mimick the droppings of the cormorants, which he used to great success right in that spot. im hoping that was C&R.
