Default Re: finally dialing in on carp

I tied up the fly about an hour before... caught 3 before losing it in some reeds (don't ya know the fish just love hanging by the reeds...). Also got a take on a 'backstabber carp fly', which is just a marabou crayfish or leech.

Similar to 'Dan's crayfish' that he just posted.

Thin skin back tied over wrapped brown squirrel. Orange small wire to segment the tail. Clear/red speckle silicone legs, and a silver dumbell to get it down. sparse flash and yellow speckled legs for feelers and mouth parts. I hide the hook eye under the tail and color the dumbell black with sharpie.
