Carp Worm

Carp are a tough fish to fish for. However, they are really rewarding when you finally hook into one. They pull like a freight train, and are challenging to even hook. Many times you have to go with lighter line, and small flies, which makes it tough to bring them in. Here is a fly that is tied to swim hook point up. You are going to be fishing carp on the bottom for the majority of the time, so this fly needs to be somewhat weedless. Being hook point up really helps with that. Last time I went out fishing for carp though, I ended up hooking into a really nice brown trout, on this pattern. So it obviously will work on more than just carp. Below is a list of materials, and below that is a step by step on how to tie this fly. Materials: Hook: Firehole sticks #516 in size 10 Bead: 3.2mm black tungsten slotted bead Thread: Veevus 10/0 in red Tail/Body: Medium "ultra chenille" in red Collar: Brown Marabou Cement: Hard as Hull Tying Instructions: Step 1 - Put the bead onto your hook Step 2 - Start your thread right behind the bead Step 3 - Measure out your chenille to 3 times the length of the hook Step 4 - Tie in your chenille right behind the bead, and on top of the hook shank, and down deep into the bend of the hook Step 5 - Tie in another piece of chenille on top of the hook shank, tying it back to where you tied down the other piece of chenille Step 6 - Make touching wraps up the hook shank with your chenille stopping a bead length shy of the bead. Step 7 - Make a dubbing loop with your thread Step 8 - Pull off the fibers of the marabou feather Step 8 - Place those fibers in the dubbing loop, so the tips extend out to just past the length of the hook. Step 9 - Spin up your dubbing loop Step 10 - Wrap your marabou hackle around the hook shank, pulling all the fibers rearward with every wrap Step 11 - Whip finish your fly. Step 12 - Add a drop of head cement to keep the whip finish in place Step 13 - Burn the end of the chenille with a lighter to give it a taper Most important Step - Fish your FLY!

Chewy Caddis Emerger

So I am changing up the way I do my fly tying videos for a few months, I am not doing the voice overs, instead I will be listing below the materials I used on the fly, and also a quick tutorial typed up on what to do. So click the read more to view all that. This fly is a caddis emerger, with horns. The body material used is really stretchy and makes nice ribbing on the abdomen. I really like using it. Just get a nice taper on the fly, and wind it on, not pulling too tight and you will have a perfectly segmented, and tapered body to the fly. So here is the materials used on the fly, and below this also look for the step by step on tying it. Hook: Firehole sticks #316 in size 14 Bead: 4MM black brass bead Lead: .025 and .010 lead wire Thread: Veevus 10/0 in black Abdomen wrap: Chewee skin in caddis green colo Horns: Black crystal flash Thorax dubbing: Hairtron dubbing in dark brown Glue: Hard as hull head cement Step 1 - Attach the bead Step 2 - Make 8-10 wraps with the .025 lead wire Step 3 - Make 10-12 wraps with the .010 lead wire Step 4 - Make wraps of thread over your lead wire to create a smooth taper. Step 5 - Cut the chewee skin with a taper Step 6 - Attach the chewee skin on the back of the hook on the thinner part of the tapered skin. Step 7 - make wraps up the hook, progressively getting looser as you reach the bead. Step 8 - Capture the skin, cut off the waste, and make tight wraps to keep it in place. Step 9 - Tie in a single strand of crystal flash, and then tie in the forward facing part rearward as well, making sure they are separated a bit. Step 10 - Dub on some hairtron dubbing and cover up over the horns a bit. Step 11 - Whip finish your fly. Step 12 - Brush out the dubbing slightly Step 13 - Add a drop of head cement. Step 14 - Fish your fly!
