I found a pond close to my work that I went and fished today and it is packed full of carp. I don't have any experience catching carp on a fly and had zero luck getting them to bite anything that I threw. I was wondering if someone who has experience catching carp on a fly could meet me there and show me what I'm doing wrong and try to help me catch my first carp on a fly. I could even come and pick you up if you would like. It's in the Richardson area so anyone who would be interested please let me know.
Also, I noticed a few carp completely leap out of the water a few times while I was there. I thought this was kind of weird because I thought that carp were strictly bottom feeders, but I also noticed a lot of them foraging on the surface of the water. I know that they were carp, I could tell by the shape of their bodies, their color and their pink lips. Is this a normal thing for carpto do?
