Reader Drew Ross sent me a link to this cool video about chasing grass carp on shallow-water flats in his native Arkansas. This looks every bit as exciting as stalking the flats for bonefish, and the fish are a lot bigger. I especially dig the head-on shot of the fish coming into the net. Here’s Drew’s description of the video:
I’ve been using my Clearwater 6-weight and sight-fishing grass carp from my Jackson Kayak Cuda 12 for few years. I’ve had a lot of success and recently started capturing it on camera. I hope the videos show how exciting fly fishing from a kayak can be, especially when you target spooky fish in shallow water. This video was filmed on Friday, May 6th. I moved some grass carp—including a couple large ones—on dry flies and landed several in just a few hours.
