Don Werden, Dave Hosler and I fished the lower Tippy river during the TFF tournament Saturday. Don was alerted to some nervous water up ahead of us. We pushed up slowly and anchored, made a few casts, then off to the left I saw this fish cruising along a submerged log. I made a cast and was a bit behind the fish, so I picked up the cast for another shot. I noticed that the fish swirled hard at where the fly had hit on the first cast so I dropped the fly right back where it was and "POW". This 29" Asian Carp ate, and ate very aggressively. Was using a TFO 6wt tipped with a modified Tarpon Toad pattern that Capt. Tim Kline designed for Bone Fish. Was a wonderful fight that lasted maybe 10 minutes topped off with a Big High 5 from Dr. Don!
You think it was me? Is that why you jumped into the water, backwards? You were proly soapin up when you were makin all those little jerkin motions while your head was under water. Now I get it, you was bathin soes I'd be the one accused of smellin like a fish!
