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
•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.
