Re: A few carp
Rule #1 is know your forage...carp can and do eat just about anything, so often it is very specific to your particular body of water. On lake MI, i fish big 2 inch long bunny leeches (they eat gobies) but on my home water they eat mostly clams and nymphs (they dig the clams out and eat the nymphs that try to escape the digging). the hybrid has a worm tail (extended foot of a clam) but looks buggy/nymphy so you can fish to both of their primary forages with one fly.
it might not work at all on your water (though it fishes well on lake mi believe it or not). Totally depends on your forage. i've caught roughly 250-280 carp this year, and probably 70% of them have come on the hybrid.
