The Carp Crusades - The Great White Hope

In the carp crusades we've had a lot of success with the red San Juan Wormball so far. However, looking at the tying bench reveals I'm out of red vernille or ultra-chenille for tying the red wormball. That left either white or black and since black would be difficult to see, white was chosen.

The question became would the carp take notice of an albino colored gob of worms? Certainly I didn't know, so I named the fly the Great White Hope. And today... it was put to the test on the Oklahoma Prairie Ocean at Rock Creek.

Did it produce? Oh, brother... just wait for the pictures and report.

Charlie and I both fished today and we had a very good day. Charlie actually had a camera with him and promises pictures soon.

Stay tuned.
