Carp on the Fly

A quick trip to Trinity County left us with about an hour to fish in Redding. We went to a little bluegill pond I know of in hopes of catching a couple in the heat. As soon as I walked to the edge, I saw a few gills milling about. I flipped a white simi-seal leech out in front of me and this carp came barreling in from deeper water. It didn't even hesitate, it sucked in my fly and the fight was on. It was quite a battle on my little Eagle Claw Featherlight. The gills didn't want to cooperate much but I managed one bluegill, and Kayla got a sweet bass, her first on a fly! Not too shabby for an hour of fishing.
