Koi on a Fly

Well now I've seen it all. Clay caught a 5 1/2 pound carp on a fly. We were enjoying 3 hours of non stop peacock bass action, when Clay yelled and set the hook on what he just knew was the largest peacock bass ever to come out of Lake Wilson. It was wild, this fish was stripping line from the reel and Clay is trying to head the boat to deeper water. Clay had the wireless remote for the electric motor, so all I could do was shoot pictures and shout encouragement. The carp stayed deep and never jumped, so we still figured it was a big tuke on the line. Finally, after a long stubborn fight, it broke the surface and you should have seen the look on Clays face. Total surprise.
In 15 years of fly fishing, this was Clays first carp on a fly.

Aloha,
Stan
