Published: 07/27/2011
Description: This week, after a special introduction from my son who visited the studio this week, two self-described carp addicts talk all about carp fishing, from finding them to presentation tactics to tackle and flies. I interview my co-worker Tim Daughton, who is by far the most experienced carp fly fisherman on our staff--to put it more precisely he's obsessed with carp fishing and will pass up trout fishing most times to chase carp. We've had lots of requests to do more podcasts on these very challenging fish, available to most people in urban and rural locations throughout the world. In the fly box, we ramble from how much to spend for a fly rod to when to replace a fly line to fishing in foul weather to a few steelhead tips. And a couple more.

Also in part 1, we have some tips in the Fly Box section on fishing CDC flies, choosing one rod for bass and trout, and how to get your nymph deep in small plunge pools. Part 2 is a video where we have tips on pike fishing (along with some shots of nice pike caught on a fly), courtesy of The New Fly Fisher TV show, the best how-to fly fishing show on TV right now (it's on World Fishing Network and some PBS stations). View the Part 2 video here: www.orvisnews.com/flyfishing/flyfishingforpike.aspx I know I learned a ton from interviewing Drew and watching the video and can't wait to get at the pike this spring.
