Gil- If you can tie a fly to look like four kernels of corn, I can put you on a winner.

Gil,
I would like to try this carp on the fly thing. What is the best way to go about it. I've got a suitable rod, I just can't seem to catch them.

I actually have one of these flies. I won a box of Rainy's carp flies, and this concoction was in it. Now as long as the carp eat corn "naturally" (like run-off from an agricultural field), those fish would be tournament legal. If the carp are used to eating corn because somebody feeds them corn, that constitutes a "fed" fish.

Under most circumstances, a true carp man frowns upon this fly. It's a bit like shooting hens off the roost out your car window with a rifle. I've never been accused of being a purist at anything, though. \:D I'd fish for them outside the tournament like that any day.

They are very difficult to catch even if you know what you are doing. PM me, and I'll shoot you my phone number to answer any questions I can and to get you started on the right track. In the mean time, read the article in the below link. Good luck!

Gil- They aren't being fed if that is what you are asking. The only corn they eat or even see for that matter is on a hook.

This is a gray area I cannot in good conscience wade into for tournament carpin', but I think it would be a ball to do just for fun.

All right Dunigan - For a guy who's been talkin' trash about trash fishin' for months, you've been awful quiet. It's carp time, this is the honorable carp thread, and not a peep from you? It's time for you to man up and start telling stories! Lies are perfectly acceptable in this thread.
