    Nice fish guys!

    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.

    Transportation question

    Foam block and straps ok as long as nose of kayak is tied securely to front bumper.

    A friend of mine was going this morning and he usually does well on flies

    They still haven't finished spawning in the Hamilton Harbour and usually the action gets hot right after.

    Knowledge on pike

    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.

    Dufferin islands carp

    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.

    How to Catch Shad?

    Small flies work - they get caught by accident when fly fishing for other species

    Credit Shinanigans

    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

    Question for the older guys (like me)

    Question for the older guys (like me)

    It started as a tennis elbow inflammation in the early season - a windy day that I caught some nice fish. Now there is pain just picking up a kettle to pour water. my mechanics are less than perfect for fly casting and that can't help
  15. I have developed an elbow injury this year and am trying to get recovered but the fly fishing is really aggravating it. Do any of you have experience like this and suggestions on how to get better? thanks in advance
