Hybrid Carp Fly

Carp are interesting fish. And the flies most people use to fish for them are even more interesting. Some very simple, some very complicated. Most are made to resemble worms, nymphs, or even moss. I have caught a couple carp In the past and each time was an amazing experience. They are powerful fish and very finicky as well. They are hard to get to bite, and when they finally do, they are a fight to bring in. This Hybrid carp fly, tied by John Montana seems to be a good one. Simple to tie, and im hoping is very effective. I have had trouble at my local waters hooking some of the carp. Its crystal clear water, so its hard to cast to them without them seeing you. But even when I do get a good cast, ive had them look over almost all flies Ive thrown at them. I am hoping this fly is the ticket as Ive heard it works for many carp fisherman around the world.

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.
