Anyone here fly fish for carp? I hooked into a huge one today and ended up losing it, but man was it an epic fight. I was using a size ten wooly bugger going for panfish, but was wondering what the guru's are using for carp.

I have never fly fished for carp before, but I did come across this interesting carp fly.  It is suppose to represent a cottonwood or black poplar seed that carp sometimes eat when in season.smiley

That's an interesting one. I don't tie my own flies, but I'll have to see if I can find that. I knew carp eat a wide variety of things, but I've never seen that before. Thanks for the reply!

Hi NJChris,
Here is another plant related fly a few folks use for carp ----> http://thesimontons.com/flyrecipes.html
This one may work were you find mulberries close to carp waters. wink

Carp sure seem to enjoy tasty plant snacks more then most fish it seems.

I was thinking some salmon egg pattern flies might imitate mulberries fairly well

After losing another one from the boat Saturday, I went back and got it done today from the bank. Granted this was by far the smallest of the three, in the 20-24in range, but I'm happy to land one. All three hook ups were on size 10 woolly buggers, so it seems like right now these bunch of carp are keying in on them. If you can put it in front of them, they eat it. Now I just need to put the bug in front of a big one and see if I can get it done.

Nice carp. Good to see the flys are working for you. smiley
I bet they put up a good fight on a fly rod.

Carp will readily eat small minnows and leaches Givin the chance. A wooly bugger is a fairly popular carp fly I think
