Long overlooked and disrespected here in the US, this lowly bottom feeder is finally receiving the attention it deserves. 

So, is a carp a gamefish, you better believe it!

The common belief is that carp reside in less than desirable locals.  While it is true, carp can survive and even thrive in less than ideal habitats, they actually prefer cool, clean water.

We always say trout live in beautiful places.  Well guess what, so do carp!

Egg patterns are deadly and with slow sink rate and bright color are easy to track. 

Hybrid flies can be mistaken for any number of carp favorites and are good searching patterns.

Bugs!  Cicadas, hoppers, crickets, beetles all will work.  Cast well ahead of a feeding fish so as not to spook your target.  Let them work up to the fly.
