Bugs, Bugs, Bugs, Carp!

I sat down with the intention of doing a nice little write up about bugs and carp and all kinds of stuff about fishing this time of year and deep down in my brain a little voice said…

“Don’t do it man, nobody really gives a shit. You don’t really give a shit. Get off your ass and go for a walk. Hell man, go stare at a spot on the wall, it will be time better spent.”

I always listen to the little voice in my head.

There are bugs, billions of bugs on the river and carp feeding on them.

Lots of both.

The bugs I can deal with.

I hate carp.

They’re in the way.

By the end of the month both will start to disappear.

September can’t come soon enough.

Catching just enough of these to keep things interesting. Catching carp is not interesting.

A few days earlier I had mentioned to Bob Long that I haven’t caught a drum on the Fox in years. Ask and ye shall receive.
