"Two rod" Jay caught another rare carp last Friday. This time he hooked a fan tail carp.
In 2011 I caught a carp like this in December. This one weighed in at about eight pounds.
Here is another view note the fins are elongated too.
Jay tried to display the beautiful tail; reminds me of the tail of a Goldfish.
I managed to catch this eleven pound common carp, later in the day. I used my Yellow
Fenwick ( "Floater Bum" almost two meters long - 7 wt fiberglass fly rod). The rod is made for the Asian market. I got it from Japan. It is a great 3 piece rod.
Here is the carp I caught as it is lifted by net from the lake. I was really glad I used the 7 wt
rod. It made the fight with the carp easier.
A male and female duck looking for bread. Sorry it is against the law to feed waterfowl in the park.
