I recently started fly fishing and really the only places where I can fly fish is a state lake about 1 hour away. I do have a few rivers/streams closer to me though but about the only fish in it are carp. I didn't even think about fishing for carp, but I saw some posts on here and it sounds like alot of fun.
The river/stream, not sure what to call it, is only about 3 feet deep at the deepest but usually much shallower. It is also pretty muddy and visibility isnt great. So Im wondering, in these conditions, what flies should I use. I dont have any "carp" flies so are there any essentials that would be easy to tie? And what size should I tie them in?
I appreciate any help/suggestions
