I prepared what I thought were perfect plans for a few grandiose fishing adventures over the past month. But it wasn’t meant to be.
On the day I was scheduled to fish with Josh Hutchins at Thompson’s Creek Dam, I fell victim to a nasty virus that put me in bed for a couple of days. Following that, a trip to the East Branch of the Kiewa River in Victoria was all but rained out. I did manage to step into the river and another nearby stream, but the conditions weren’t great, and it simply wasn’t my day.
I did, however, have a bit of luck at the 10th Singleton Fly Fishing Club Carp Classic, held last weekend. Side-by-side with my fellow Club members, I did my best to remove a few fish from Lake Liddell in a couple of hours.
Pretty spot? Certainly.
Some people won’t fish for carp. It’s “beneath” them. I’m not of that ilk.
Carp are all the rage in America at the moment: Kirk Deeter has even written a book dedicated to fly fishing for the world famous rogue fish species.
All-in-all, a pretty nice Saturday morning.
