I went down to the River today for a couple of hours and ran into a Fishermen’s Spot customer, Keith Mosier, who was fishing it for the first time too.

I had a tough time hooking fish but, the one I did hook was big and broke me off on 2X.

Keith Mosier nabs his first L.A. River carp. Oh, yeah! (Ken Lindsay)

Keith told me about a group of feeders that he had found and we went to take a look. They were tanks!

Keith graciously let me have a shot at them but I could get no love. He stepped back in and immediately hooked a nice one that took him down stream about 50 yards but he finally was able to land his first carp on a fly and I was on hand to take some pics.

  1. Yeah, that’s the kind of water I never get love in. I find that the fish has to be feeding, or at least interested, then the fly has to come in slowly to that maybe 1-foot cone right around his mouth.
