I fished Saylorville Lake from shore yesterday. Its a frustrating place to be with a fly rod most times. But, I found some actively feeding carp, and managed to catch 3. Each hit a different fly, but all flies were white/flashy like a small shad. The bigger two were 23" and 25".
I used the "pre-owned" flyrod/reel/line I bought from my friend Chad again on this trip...I've been giving his old rod a workout on the wipers and carp...its been performing very well!
The fly below was unweighted. The other two flies were weighted with either a pink beadhead or lead barbell.
