I bet that big ole grass carp pulled back just a little bit???


Funny story...
The grassie barely pulled at all - it was like reeling in a brick...

UNTIL....

I got him in and got the Boga Grip on him, and he completely freaked out. He broke my line, and I somehow dropped the Boga. I watched him swim away with my fly and My Boga. I was soooooo ticked (Bogas are expensive!!!)

I noticed he stopped in 2 feet of water and just hung there.
I waded in and slowly crept up behind him, reached down, and grabbed the Boga which was still in his mouth. I guess he was too tired to notice.

He freaked out again and got me drenched, but I held on this time.I can't believe I got the fish, the Boga and the fly back. 1 in a million!


I watched a big flathead swim away with a pair of imitation Boga Grips still stuck in his jaw when I let a client "release" the fish.

We were in 25 feet of water... not much chance of "retrieval." I always wonder what happened to that fish?

Yeah, I've been meaning to do that. I have seen them with one of those styrofoam noodles cut to fit and threaded on some string. Is that the preferred method?

By the way, I thread one of those on the end of my anchor lines when river fishing. If I get hung up and have to unhook my anchor, I can go back and find it because the end is floating.
