    Grass carp are awesome. We have our " End of Year Shindig" where there's a pond with a few monsters. I swear they can see 8x tippet.

    Grass Carp are one of the toughest fish in fresh water to get on a fly rod.
    But they are amazing fighters in good water conditions.
    Nice work with the net, not enough folks do a good job with that on bigger fish.

    The perfect fly rod fish- more discriminating than trout with big, big shoulders!

    That fly looks like a floater. Did he actually take it on top?
    We had some huge grass carp in our community pond. When the landscapers were out mowing I used hand motions to ask them to mow so the clippings ended up in the water. You should have seen those carp turn into gulpers Hebgen Lake would never experience. We tied on Sister Carol’s Grass Carp Fly and had a blast. I still have some of that yarn she used.
    Fine job on that grasser!

    Yeah, it rose and took it like a spring creek brown, slow and deliberate. It's cool to raise a fish that size to sip a surface fly.
