Carp Redux 2011 - Charlie's Triumphant Return

Charlie hasn't had much time on the water in the last week or so.  Well... that's not exactly the truth... he has had time on the water, but, it's been with cane pole, worms, and grandchildren.  That's beautifully wonderful in itself.

However, he hasn't been able to carp by fly in the last week or so.  Today, he returned to the pursuit of carp by the fur and feather and what a return it was.


Singling out a rather large carp, Charlie sent out an offering in the form of an olive and yellow Carpolo Charlie fly.  In his report, Charlie says this big chap took the fly on the fall, which is always a beautiful sight to behold.

During the Carp Crusades of 2010, and thus far in the Carp Redux, both Charlie and I have tried our best to attract the attention of the sucker fish in our local creek.  We both have met with great failure.  However, Charlie reports that today two Redhorse suckers turned on the Carpolo Charlie.  We have greater hope now and if I know Charlie Wright, he'll end up catching one of those suckers.
