Fly-Carpin ties John Montana’s Hybrid Carp Fly. I talked to John about this exact pattern last summer here and posted a quick bit on FrankenFly. This is definitely a productive carp fly. Fly-Carpin has a super nice carp website, so if you are into catching carp on the fly read up. Check out the video and enjoy!

It’s not your ordinary lightweight pike fly, this is a double handful monster of an untamed fly. It will bite at you when you try and tie it on your leader. It will curse you and yell insults at you when you cast it and it will body slam any pike that’s foolish enough to come close to it. It’s wild and heavy. If a fly could be a wild sailor who’s just come ashore drunk on rum and looking to fight anyone who looks at him; this would be that fly. Full material list to be found in the intro of the video.
