Carp and chum
More dry fly fishing. During the dog days of summer fishing becomes slow. The heat during the day
is numbing, for the fish especially. I often leave home , to go fishing in the afternoon as the day's heat
begins to subside. At a lake where dry fl fishing for carp is routine. every evening carp begin to eat bugs
from the lake's surface. First from the very center of the lake and as the sun sets, they rise for chum. I
provide. Chumming is NOT a slam dunk as some believe but can cause fish to actively feed.
