Default Re: Carpin

I use a 6 wt 9'er or a 10', or an 8' 8 wt. Many options. I use one of my 6' leaders with the special ingredient ;-)
I use 10 or 12 lb fluoro
I tried many, many flies and caught one or two on different choices, but 100's on the corn ball fly.
Blind fishing most the time, I started using a clear Thingamabobber and BAM! they are back.
No authority here, just know what keeps working for me.

I have caught a few sight fishing with a #12 Elk Hair Caddis in Olive or Yellow. Now that is fun!
