Giving Montana’s Hybrid Carp Fly a Go

I happened across the Hybrid earlier this year I finely got around to giving it a try this weekend.  It produced three very nice carp on a lake near Longmont.

The original pattern is a bit different than how I tied them, but the profile and materials are pretty close

Original Recipie:
    •Hook:  Size 8 or 6 Scorpion / CarpPro Gaper
    •Hackle:  Olive pheasant rump
    •Tail:  Dark red or Wine colored micro chenille
    •Body:  Peacock chenille.

I tied some with brass eyes and some with bead chain.  When fishing shallow and the carp are spooky I find bead chain to be a better option.
