Question Need some help for carp!

Been watching youtube video's of catching carp on a fly and now I wanna catch one of a fly. I do carp fish but it's with bread dipped in honey with a spinning rod and I know exactly where and what time to find them but the problem is that they stay deep in the water 12ft or more. I rarely ever see them come to the surface. But finally this morning fly fishing for bass I spotted some near the lily pads in a little part of the lake now I need help. I don't tie my own flies yet so does any1 know some good carp flies that are worthy to use and worth a try? Should I chum for carp before using something like a corn fly (read online ) ? Need help! thanks all

I use Backstabbers, Woolly Buggers, DDH Leeches, and Clouser Craws. Carp seem to have a preference for orange around here, but I've caught many on natural colors such as black, olive, and brown. You shouldn't have any need to chum for them if they're rooting around in vegetation IMHO.

So......

Carp here in AZ require stealth and cunning tact!

Like others have said backstabbers, nymphs, buggers, and for me out here Simi Seal leaches are the main culprit for me. If you see em' cruising cast in front of them and let it fall. If they are mudding up the bottom a backstabber or crazy charlie in front of their path should do the trick.

Now you mentioned you see them rising(slurping) on the surface. In that case, I like to put on a small dry (stimulator, parachute adams) on stronger hooks, and cast into the middle of the group rising. With these smaller dry flies the presentation can be delicate to not spook, and just hold on for that white mouth to suck it down.

With that being said, it took me forever to finally land my first carp, and I have been hooked since. I hope your prepared for the trouble your about to get yourself into.
