Hungover after a D.C. United Loss

I returned to the Potomac to again try and land a snakehead. I was distracted on the way to the river by carp mudding in the C&O Canal. There is not much water in the canal right now and the water is already brown. I spotted one carp swimming by the surface and cast to it. The fish turned its head toward my fly and I lost visual on the fish. No luck. I continued down the towpath and saw another group mudding. I cast my damsel and clouser combo in the mud and got a crappie. My guess is the crappie was in there to eat whatever the carp were kicking up. Here is a video of the event:

And here are some photos of a net made from trash from the river. I'm not sure where someone learns how to do this. It looks like it would work for scooping out some migratory fish.
