Drumming up some Action

I have been going back to the spot I mentioned in my last post. No carp landed yet, but I’ve seen dozens of big ones and had quite a few takes. I did catch a small drum on the fly though – a nice change of pace from bluegills.
This is only the second drum I have ever caught. The first was also on Percy Priest Lake, almost a year ago. I was fishing squid strips with a light tackle spinning rod, casting into a deep hole and retrieving slowly along the bottom.
That drum is probably the biggest fish I have caught on that rod. At the time I wasn’t sure what species it was. It’s amazing how many fish are out there, and how much one can learn in the course of one year.
