Next, we decided to try this same tactic at another nearby pond where I have seen (and caught on fly gear) grass carp. At first it was sunfish hitting the bread, but then some bigger fish showed up. We were excited!
I tied on a "bread fly" that was mainly white marabou with a little tan marabou, tied similar to a Gartside Softhackle Streamer. I got the first hook-up into a good fish. It started dragging my line through the algae mats, so I had to wade out into the water to free my line up from this heavy "gunk".
Ben switched to a floating bread fly pattern he had tied, and started catching bluegills on it, despite the large hook.
It was fun fishing, and exciting to see the big fish boiling on the floating bread. Were ANY of those boils made by our target species, Grass Carp? Until we catch one, we just don't know.
