Conversations With Carp - "Hold Please"

It seems that Charlie and me are definitely on hold right now.  While we've been waiting for our little carp creek to settle down and get back to normal, Charlie has been scouting for other carp water.

Yesterday he sent a dispatch and through his words in that message I could tell he was very excited.  Charlie described the latest pasture he's discovered as a possible carp heaven. 

Of course upon reading his message I had to go have a look for myself.  This new possibility is a big pasture... a really big pasture and it's full of challenges and obstacles.  However, if we can overcome some of the challenges of this water there are some dandy carp that await us. 

Yesterday, shortly after arriving at this new pasture guess who else showed up... again?   Yes, it was mother once again and she had more rain in store.

Within an hour it was raining.  Today, and some twenty hours later it was still raining.  So, the message we're getting from nature is "Hold please." 

The weekend weather looks much better and hopefully we can get on the water and start dissecting this new pasture.

Good for you guys Barry on locating a new spot, that is so satisfying. You'll be back! Went out myself today, but not a new spot.

Best, Gregg
