Default Re: Warmwater flies.

I kinda collect carp patterns. I ran into a pattern on this fourm called a Blind Squirrel so I tied up a few. The creeks I warm water fish do not have carp but everything else in the creeks seem to like them. SMB, rockbass, sunfish, and some kind of creek chub. I believe that they are seen as small dads and nymphs. These creeks are mostly shallow so I use no weight as stipulated in the recipe but I think bead chain eyes would work well. I tie them on 10 thru 6 and I sub a bright orange dub in place of the natural squirrel dub. I can't wait to find some carp to try them on. Don't leave home without them
