Still no fishing to report. Yesterday would have been perfect for a quick carp outing, but from 9-12 Andy, Scott and I gave a clinic at NorthWest Flyfishing Outfitters in Portland about carp on the fly. Good turnout for the event, and I think everyone learned something. Andy really knows his stuff and did a great job presenting. Scott and I pitched in where we could, and tied some go to carp patterns for everyone to try at home. All in all a great event.

I'm hoping to get out next week! Looking foward to the water getting warmer, it won't be long now!

The picture is of a carp Justin caught in MN. Nice fish, I hope we can find some feeding carp during my trip to out there in May. I figure my goal of a 20 lb carp is as likely to fall in MN as here in OR. Watching some of the video Andy shot and presented really got me excited to chase some carp. In one sequence a nice fish was taking snails right off of the side of a boat moored to Andy's dock. Now I need to come up with a snail pattern!

Sounds like you are alread a carp guru. Pressure is on for me to find some feeding carp in may. We should talk to Scott Kinney - he said he once hooked ~45 carp in one day at the bridge... but that is not sight fishing. It might be your best bet at a ridiculously large fish though.

You are invited to the wedding... Marcus said they didn't get "save the date" notes to everyone they wanted to send them to...
