Conversations With Carp - Charlie Engages Via Creek Critter

These days if Charlie or me want to go on the hunt for carp we'd better get an early start.  On Wednesday morning when I stepped out of the bunkhouse at 4:30, it was already 84 degrees.  Charlie, being an early riser himself, evidently found out the same as he planned a dawn fly fishing outing. 

It seems that Charlie finally give up on that camera with the broken lens and has acquired a new one.  Now, he can send us images of the fruit he plucks from the local creek.

Traveling to the carp pasture that bears his name, Charlie quickly sticks a carp using the Creek Critter pattern. 

In his Wednesday morning dispatch, Charlie reported that when this carp grows up he's going to be the dickens to deal with.  Evidently this 20 incher gave quite the fight. 

Also in his dispatch of Wednesday, Charlie made comment on how poorly the creek is looking at this particular pasture and included an image to lay testament.

As I am writing this, the thunder clouds are building in the south and west.  Hopefully these clouds are serving as signal ships of impending rain.

Nice you have given the carp a break,but they are still feeding and movubg about, not stranded gasping in pools, or so I understand. Fishing as Charlie is doing is probably quite fine.
