Move over dough balls
|Carp Dough Boy|
Here is a little carp pattern that we have been playing with recently. With some of the new carp toys out like Cohen's carp dub, and Allen carp hooks, I couldn't resist messing around with some bugs. This fly is also very functional as a mini crawfish and can be tied in a variety of different colors to match the forage in your waters.
A couple of keys for this fly:
- It's compact like a little edible nugget for the fish
- It is a low odor fly. No superglue was harmed in the making of this film. The glue was Loon water based stuff.
- It's tied on a beefy hook that will hold up to the biggest and baddest carp battles.
- Ice dub - it plain catches fish.
