Not A Bullhead, I Snagged A Carp!!!
I've never seen a carp caught at the Grumpy Old Man Hole before so this was totally unexpected. I didn't know what it was for a long time and was hoping it was gonna be a dogfish. The carp was snagged in it's dorsal fin and it had to be at least 10lbs. I probably fought it for 15 minutes. As I was pulling it into the rocks the hook gave way. I wasn't about to try and grab it for a picture and before I could get the camera out it was gone. Even though it was snagged I'm still gonna call it my first fish of the year.
I did have one bite that I missed.
There was a small flock of Swans

And this bird, that I think was some kind of Hawk, had been up in this tree since I left this afternoon.
