    Okay, I am new to this, but have discovered how fun this is....
    ~ I saw Matt Cook fly fishing for gills last month at Bartlett and decided that I want to try..

    * I picked up a fly fishing combo from sportsmans Wharehouse last week and took it to Bartlett..

    * This is great!
    * Do anyother AZ folks use this method to collect bait? If so, what are some good flies? Or even better, can you catch common carp on a fly?

    Thanks!

    If all I was fishing for was bait I would use under water flys like a black gnat ( my favrite ) ant or some thing like that:big_smile:
