What? Another new Carp fly?
Wow this designing carp flies is kinda of addictive. I whipped this guy out in a matter of minutes. For me, I have to take the fly into little bits and then build on the idea. I like the way the marabou undulates while in the water. I love silly legs. Dubbing, well you have to have some of that for a body. The legs came about by accident really. I love soft hackle flies but after I added the soft plastic thin skin the legs just kinda of flattened out. By pulling them to the side I created a nice little landing pad for the rest of the fly to sit upon after being stripped. I don't know. I kinda of like it. Now only if there was some open water to chase carp.
