4 Eyed Black Betty

The Black Betty is a variant of the Carp Carrot by Jim Pankiewicz which is an adaptation of the Carrot Nymph by Anvil Tartus. I tie this lighter variation with a set of 4 bead chain eyes to help the fly sit hook up. With the lead eyes, the fly has enough weight to turn hook up, but the bead chain version doesn't alway hold true. the extra eyes help fix this.

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.
