    Carp is a lot easier to spot and much bigger than the trout. The trout was a greater test as the fish is more camouflaged and more difficult to spot and with the moving water a greater test of your skill. I looked at the Breedr rived as well at a low water bridge but that was completely dry as I heard about good sized bass to walk and stalk bowfish. The river along the N1 had flowing water

    yes, carp have huge bodies and are easily seen from many distance, shot the big ones from distance because naturally they look alot smaller. up close leave the big ones and look for the smaller ones. you might think that i'm been silly but the truth is i'm not, this is the reality, take it with a good heart and leave the trout be.

    The fly fishers are a little protective about their fishing.
