That is a good looking fly that looks like it would be productive. If it works for you and you and you are happy with it, then that is all that matters.

Do you have any special technique for fishing carp? I have casted to some several times while trout fishing with no success of getting one to take my fly.

What works for me so far is first I make sure there feeding, cloud of sediment or a tail and then i try to see which way they are facing and then cast about a foot in front of them if it looks like there headed towards it i twitch the fly a little and then start to pull in some line and if its tight i raise the rod and most of the time fish on. Most of the carp i go after are in about 2 foot of water. "Carp on the Fly" is excellent reading material if you really want to understand fly fishing for carp. The hard part is getting close enough to make a cast to one without scaring it. I think everyone should try it at least once, its fun.

Nice! That's a big one. The places that I seen them the most was in lakes right up against the bank of some islands when I had my boat. You would have been in carp heaven.
