In Fishing Close to Home host Tom Rosenbauer bebunks the myth that to enjoy great fly fishing you have to visit a remote mountain stream armed with a ton of specialist gear. He demonstrates that it's quite easy to find marvellous ponds, lakes and rivers near to where you live and that on these you can enjoy a fun day's fishing for a wide variety of species, equipped with only a basic fly rod and lightweight tackle. The marina at a local lake or the pond in the middle of a city park are good examples of very accessible places to go. And you don't have to be targeting Trout. Tom explains how the Carp, generally regarded with disdain by most anglers in the US, is rapidly becoming a must catch species for the discerning fly fisher, due to the challenge it offers being easily spooked, difficult to hook and very hard fighting. He offers plenty of tips on where to find and how best to hook them.
