    Had a great day and broke in a new rod that was given to me by a friend and fellow member FlyBy. The rod is a 9' 6wt TFO BVK and I must say that I was impressed. The tip is soft enough to make shorter casts, but the rod has the power to shoot the whole fly line out and to top it all off it has some backbone for a 6wt. The biggest one today was 28 inches long and 11.6lbs. 0403181017.jpg 0403181124.jpg 0403181310.jpg 0403181124a.jpg

    No, it’s a LT25. Looked at Towee but liked the layout of the LT better.

    I throw No.8 trouser worms in clear water, but will usually tie it in more of a rust color. If that doesn't work I throw that pattern on the left side of the pic I posted.

    Very nice. I love a rust or copper colored swimming nymph variation.

    I love carp on the fly! If the weather ever breaks here in Indy, I'll be chasing them soon enough as well!
