Kyle took me out fishing again on his boat and wow! We had a blast! Caught fish non stop! Most of them smallmouth bass, however we caught 5 different species. Smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, carp, crappie and bluegill. It was really one of the most fun days fishing I have ever had. I was also able to catch fish on a fly I tied with my own beard hair. That was a joke of a fly, but it actually worked! I couldn't believe it! Watch the video of me tying this "beard hair fly" here.... https://youtu.be/vPaIG25ng7E Kyle was fishing bass on a topwater fly, and I was able to get a shot of a bass coming up and crushing it, It was such a cool shot!
Carp are a fish that pull hard, and usually need to be fished for with an 8wt or greater. My little 5wt barely stood a chance! Not enough backbone to get the fish in, so I had to beach him with my hands. Still an absolute great day, and a giant beast of a fish to boot. I cannot believe I brought him in! For a while it seemed like the fight would carry on for hours! Instead it was 21 minutes, but it was 21 minutes of pure excitement!
