So back to the tournament. How was the weekend, Brian. Were the bigguns in your new hole? I think I'm going to go on Tuesday if the water clears up by then. It's only supposed to be 98 freaking degrees.

ha I was 3 ft from an ol grassie, nothing huge, but it was 9pm with barely any light left in the sky and something spooked him right in front of my face as I lay flat on the ground with my fly rod.... oh well there's next time. Not half as bad as having a 15-20 pounder take your fly and then having the hook come off somehow.

Yall have fun in the heat, I am deciding what to do with Tuesday as I have the whole day off.

Is that any way to talk on a public forum???

Looks like you and catman are both going to be fishing tomorrow while I'm stuck at work. I guess I'll be nervously checking the board Wednesday morning...

Good luck, but not TOO much luck.

I will be all over the map tomorrow, not staying in one spot too long, unless I find a spot where the fish are numerous and cooperating.

Okay clue me in on what type of fly you use for carp? all I see is people using honemade dough balls and tight line for them.

mostly crawfish and nymph imitations. make sure it sinks good because you want to present it on the bottom, where the fish is feeding.

Well, the carp tournament is over, and below are the results. My good buddy and tournament newcomer Walt Kloeppel caught this beeeeg ole silver carp to take home first prize. A couple of my fish got second and third.

Tndeer's own Brian Dunigan obliterated everyone in total pounds with 70 fish and 457 pounds, and I got third in that category. In his first couple of months of flyfishing and first time in the tournament, tndeer's catman got on the board with four fish - a highly impressive feat for a newbie.

Here's a pic. of Walt's big fish and a couple of Dunigan handing over the Carp Masters jacket to Walt. Tournament tradition is that last year's winner (Dunigan) must put the honorable ugly jacket on this year's winner. The banquet at host Fly South Fly Shop was awesome, and a good time was had by all. Let the trash talking begin for next year's event.

Congratulations to all. I think I would have flipped the top two "ugly" fish.

it was great to participate this year and I look forward to next year. Congrats to all the winners. that silver carp was a cool catch despite silver carp being such a nuisance fish. I'd love to get my fly in front of one that was feeding like that. I will be honing my carp fly fishing skills between now and next year's tourney....

Oh yeah - forgot to give credit where credit is due. Catman's ugly fish captured second place, and more than a few felt he could have won the king of the big uglies. \:\)
