  1. If you post a photo of the fly you may get more suggestions- there are several good tyers on this board
  2. Flycarp

    Newbie setup

    I do a lot of carp fishing on the fly outfit. 8 wt is good but I would make sure you get a good reel that can hold lots of backing and has a nice drag. These fish can take off and peel line in a hurry. pm me if you want to get some pointers and samples of flies - I think we need a little more time to let the water to warm up in Hamilton to get the fish turned on but it is awesome action once conditions are right.
  3. Foam block and straps ok as long as nose of kayak is tied securely to front bumper.
  4. A friend of mine was going this morning and he usually does well on flies
  5. They still haven't finished spawning in the Hamilton Harbour and usually the action gets hot right after.
  6. Will be trying Hamilton Monday after work and will let you know
  7. I have had good luck with spring pike in locations that have feeder streams - theses streams deliver baitfish (shiners, chubs, sucker) to the larger water bodies when heavy rains come and the pike are there to feed.
  8. Absolutely yes people use a fly rod and with some good results. I find the carp less cooperative with cold water but late May to mid July are very eager to take the flies.
  9. We are trying to hire in Brantford and can't get people.
  10. Small flies work - they get caught by accident when fly fishing for other species
  11. Sad the lack of enforcement in that area - I was there a lot when I was a kid and it has always been a circus
  12. Thanks some good stuff here Dave C I would take the contact information of your recommended guys for some pointers - will wail till this settles down but always good to get some expert guidance
