Have you ever tried bowfishing for carp it is much more enjoyable and productive. :biggrin:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

How about that for carp?

but seriously, this is kind of a growing area in the past 5 years - a lot more books on it now and people doing it. I'm still not that interested, but I think even Cabelas is getting in on the action with an assortment of flies.

This website looks like a good source of information.

Also, checkout www.flyanglersonline.com - they have a warmwater section and a group of very loyal warmwater anglers.

Is that a cigarette butt? If it is, I have had some success with those for panfish but I'm pretty sure carps will gulp that thing down too. I guess fish need their nicotine too. lol.
