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.

Capt Matt guides with his drift boat in the Colorado Rockies during the best carp months. If you are interested in sight fishing for big Common Carp on the banks of the Colorado River, go to for information and booking. Thanks for watching!

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
