Also for deep water try fishing at dawn and dusk or even at night if it allows... This'll increase your chances of catching fish that retreat to the safer deeper water during the day... But come in shallow in low light conditions to feed.
Itchmesir thanks for the advice. I have a lot of dish foams in my kitchen. I will use them to tie some.
You know, in a lake(let's say the depth is 10 ft) you cast your baits with a sinker and just wait. How does that happen in fly fishing? Should i cast it and wait until a fish comes and gets it?

Glad to have you fly fishing and participating on the forum and best of luck with your tying and going after Carp, they can be quite the challenge but well worth the effort to figure out how to catch on a fly rod.
Thank you Larry. I am trying my best. So glad to have you guys to help me.

turkey doesnt seem like the fly fishing mecca of the world but maybe your just a pioneer
carp are great fun on the fly and maybe you should explore these further
they will take all sorts of nymphs and simple flies as well as
What are the chances of getting a carp on the fly? Is it a common thing to catch carps on fly?
Should i cast my bait and just leave it after sinking down or wait for a couple seconds and cast again?
Guys with your guidance, i tied that fly again. I tied and untied these about 3 times each, until i got some satisfactory results. Since the hook i use is soooo small i can't tie it very well. On red body part i couldn't hide the line but i guess the fish will like these. I think one of them is still a little too fat while the other one is a little too skinny
