Suspending Carp Fly
The action of this Suspending Carp Fly keeps it in the strike zone for carp that are near the surface or feeding in shallow water. Sight fishing is all about watching the fish eat the fly, and this carp fly is just right. I always use strong steel when I tie carp flies and my hook sizes range from #14 to #10. I believe this pattern imitates a number of insects that carp feed on like a damsel or a stonefly nymph.
