Lately I've been chasing carp out on the flats at Ray Roberts and having a great time. We arrived at dawn and were greeted by several fish milling about in ankle deep water. It Took a couple of casts before I put the fly where I wanted it and the line came tight after a long slow strip. I repeated this with several more fish and blew a number of opportunities. Sometimes the line just comes tight and other times the carp covered some ground in reckless fashion to inhale the fly (when this happens you almost forget they are carp and not redfish). They hit anything buggy, wooly boogers, puffs, and other goofy easily tied "carp flies." The location is great. It is close enough to not waste an entire day yet far enough away to feel like you are out of the city (saw many deer too).
