Default Re: I am addicted to fly fishing for carp,

Carp arent leader shy in terms of size, but they are leader shy if its too short. i try to keep atleast a 9' leader on, sometimes we will go to 12'.

For a Super simple cottonwood pattern, use which ever short shank heavy wire hook you like, tie on a small piece of white foam, and a CDC feather or a couple tuffs of white marabou and call it a day. Floats forever and looks just like a cottonwood seed. Also tie some foam mullberries, I would be willing to bet that if they are sipping cottonwood seeds, and a nice purple mullberry plops down, they will eat it.
