Very nice little book. Lots of "how-tos," where to find the critters and figure out what they're up to and all the flies they like, how to tie them plus a valuable section by Whitlock on the flies he uses for carp. Yes, Whitlock fishes for carp! But why is there no chapter on how to cook one of these creatures? No fishing book is complete (even in the age of love 'em and leave 'em)without one. Shame on you.

I can finally come out of the closet! Yes, I fish for Carp. Initially with bait but now with a fly rod. This book is a super introduction to the freshwater Bonefish. Carpfishing on the Fly has all you need to get started. Whether it's tackle, tactics or fly patterns you're looking for it's in this book. Of course, there is a great section on why to fish for carp as well as sections on the life cycle and biology of the Golden Salmon. Chances are good you'll find carp near where you live. Grab this book and your fly rod and head for the water.

I love the way the book is organized. It's very easy to follow. This book got me pumped up to go do some carp fishing on the fly rod. The carp is the closest thing I can get to a bonefish living in MN. If you want to have a blast catching fish that are huge and probably very close to where you live, this book has everything you need for fly carping.

Carp on the fly is among the best how to books I have read. I burned through it in two sittings and really want to go hunt carp on the fly. I love its no nonsense approach to target this species a very easy and fun read.

This book is very thorough, covering the range of topics from carp behaviors to specific fly patterns and presentations. I'm very impressed with the amount of field experience and analysis that went into this book. I really think it will help any skill level of fly angler who is interested in targeting carp. Excellent content, and interesting to read!
