Went to Central Park for carp today. I fished the Lake at 72nd street near the Bethesda Fountain. Tourist congregate here to take pictures, so it is not an ideal place to fly fish for carp. I wore earth tone clothing and was surprise to find that the carp seem to not see me standing in the shadows. I stood as still as possible while the carp surfaced and ate my chum. I used the white mullet fly again.
