A Handful

Went chasing carp today and had numerous targets.  Caught the first fish I cast to and then they put the voodoo on me.  I managed to spook them every which way.  Sometimes the fly hitting the water spooked them, sometimes the leader touched the fish and game over, twice the fly got caught up on something and then with a bit of tension it came loose and this spooked them.  Then there is the fly line spooking them it was ridiculous.  So I lengthened the leader and tied on a lighter fly.  This didn't solve the entire problem but put the odds  bit more in my favor.  After missing and messing up a few others this one was sighted.  Best carp of the season.
