Then the rain began to fall and of course everyone that lives in this area was thankful and joyous. For the last four weeks it has rained at least once during that week and it's been significant enough to keep the creek a brown blur.
Sometimes those of us who angle get so desperate in our chase for a species of choice, we simply roll the dice and go for it. Yesterday I was feeling quite desperate and decided to go to the creek. Standing on the bank with fly rod and the Aftermath fly, I was staring at a dingy brown creek with no carp in sight. Like I said, sometimes you just have to go for it.
I think the carp have been missing the Aftermath.
