Jump off test. from Chris Cooper on Vimeo.
Couldn't see. Fish facing dead away so I snapped the leader and fly from left to right at the end of the cast to try and give it a better presentation. He dropped so I thought spooked but just dropped down and turned to eat from underneath which is typical. Had hardly any sun but that was a nice little window but at least it ate at at a bad angle and jumped off.
Only had ONE good day of vis, day one and my stupid GoPrp crashed both times I hooked perfect fish jumping all around the skiff in great vis in my POV. Would have been awesome but I'm working with the meager shit I ended up getting.

Crappy vis and learning GoPro and NASTY fish! Should have broken it off a couple times, right from the blind eat! Anyway, I would kill for some good vis. I guess it's been nice in the Keys since I'm supposed to be there right now but the Government shutdown has all my October Poon spots off limits. Crap!
One of these days I promise to get clear water, good vis carp and tarpon action. And tons of other piscatorial species as well! I have tons of old video that I need to process but it's a big job and I'm a technical artard....

Firstcarp2013 from Chris Cooper on Vimeo.
Latest start to a carp season in 23 years! Went up to one of my little private carp lakes without the skiff just to see what was up and caught 36 carp in 6 hours averaging 10lbs so well over my body-weight which is saying a lot! ;)
