"Rocky Mountain Redfish" otherwise known as the common carp have been quickly growing in popularity among fly fishers. It has taken many years for most of us to overcome the Trash Fish stigma. The entrenching of catch and release in fly fishing culture and the increased travel to saltwater fishing destinations has opened the door for the widespread acceptance of carp fishing. The appeal of stalking large fish in shallow flats is overwhelming!
I have compiled a few short videos to possibly answer some questions about fly fishing for carp, but mainly to get people motivated! If you are planning a trip to Texas or Louisiana to chase redfish, or a trip for bonefish and permit...this type of fishing is the best (maybe ONLY) way to get you in the right frame of mind. Your saltwater trip will be noticeably more productive!
