If you are tired of fishing for finicky trout try fishing the warm-water options all around the area. Fishing for bass on top-water flies, like the poppers tied by Eric Snyder below, can be a lot of fun. Carp are another great warm water target species. To catch a carp you must be able to make accurate casts, choose the right fly, and have a little bit of luck. They are very difficult to catch, especially when they are feeding in shallow water. Stop by the shop to check out some of Eric’s patterns and give the warmer water a try before summer ends.
