Chris thinks suckers are evolving to take flies (explaining why he’s caught more of them this year than any other in the past 25). I think the suckers are just reacting to all the good press they’re getting these days in the Wall Street Journal and the blogs.
Let’s hear it for the net man!
Lucky for me, I just got my end of the fly swap from Jean-Paul Lipton at The Roughfisher. Looks like I’ll be hitting our local carp waters this weekend instead of fishing the pellet-head opener. I’m sending Lipton some megaprinces and tungsten possie buggers, so we’ll see if some West Coast magic works on his home waters.
