Sometimes I stretch the truth a little

Who in their right mind would waste such otherworldly fly specimens on carp?

Certainly not I.

That makes me feel better. I was battling a case of paranoia thinking you knew something I didn’t. Though they would doubtless work under the “its the presentation not the fly dummy” axiom, they sure didn’t look like the carp-flies I am used to.

No worries Mctage – you were not alone. Even the tier himself emailed me, suddenly questioning their efficacy.

Gregg Martin says:

I took it seriously, and so would any self respecting carp, and I adored that selection. Sort of like using a full dress salmon fly for steelhead when a burlap bug would work just as well. Now to talk him into it.

I like the burlap bag approach for finicky brook trout. 😉
