Title: Lake Isabella carpin'
Post by Forum Admin on Jun 26th, 2010, 4:46pm

On one of the few days this last month the lake wasn't blown out by constant high wind Guy Jeans and I went out to check out the carp. We found a sea of clooping carp with just as many cruisers. While the cloopers, as usual, were indifferent to flies presented right in their face, the cruiser would occasionally take a fly making for a day of constant carp action.

This one imitated a freight train and took my 5wt with 5X tippet way into the backing:
