Incidentally, the fly is yet another experiment in egg yarn where I chop it up for use as a dubbing to make the head on an Egan's Headstand. The egg-yarn really pops and makes it easy to see your fly.

2012 Stillwater Carp Finale
I think I have to call it official. The off-season on my local river shall continue until further notice, but I am calling this fine little pond carp from Sunday my 2012 still-water finale. I have been dropping an hour here and there checking in on local ponds and lakes for weeks now with nary a shot. Sunday wasn't much of an exception but I did get one shot and one take in an hour of walking. On the flip-side I have been doing really well on the river with good shots, decent numbers and freakish for me average size lately so it is hard to understand why I have been bothering at all.
