In this episode of RIO's "How To Fly Fish" Chris Walker talks about fly fishing for carp. Though not everybody's choice as a target species for fly fishers, carp are notoriously fickle to deceive, hard fighters, and can grow very large. In addition, carp are not adversely affected by hot weather (as trout are), and can be found in far more locations than trout. In short, they are an ideal species for the fly fisher to chase.
In this film Chris talks about what flies to fish, how to fish them, what kind of water carp like to inhabit, and what gear to use when chasing carp. Anyone thinking about fly fishing carp will find all the information they will need here.
RIO's "How To Fly Fish" videos are a series of short films that explain all you need to know to learn a particular way to fish or cast. Where applicable, each film talks through the gear that you need, shows how to rig the gear, how to read the water, and how to fish that particular technique. These educational films are packed with information and top tips designed to improve the knowledge and skill level of all fly fishers. Each one is bought to you by a RIO employee or a RIO brand ambassador.
