Bugle Buddy - Carp Fly

Lots of Movement = Lots of Bendo

Chartreuse Bugle Buddy

Bugle Buddy Eater
We have been fishing for carp here and there over the years, but it's gotten a kick into overdrive in the last couple of months.  Up to this point, We have been playing with a few carp flies here and there, but we also used a lot of just trout flies like the El Sculpito and the Masked Marauder stonefly nymph.  Though the trout flies did the trick in a pinch, it really helps if you have an arsenal of carp flies that are designed specifically designed for the task at hand. Through researching a lot of the effective modern carp flies out there, there are some similarities that I have seen that I have adopted with some of my designs.  1- They are tied with barbell eyes of some sort, and depending on depth, they can be various sizes of brass or bead chain. 2- They have something sticking "up" from the back of the fly.  Like McTage's Trouser Worm and John Montana's Carp Hybrid .  I have actually been playing with those patterns as well, so look for some tutorials on the variations that I come up with.


With those two points to work with, I started tying a very simple pattern that I began calling the
Tan Bugle Buddy


Bugle Buddy.  Two simple strands of magnum predator legs, a vinyl nymph rib body, and some rabbit in a dubbing loop wrapped around the barbell eyes.  I have only really tested this fly in two colors, but they both worked really well even though some people were convinced that no carp would eat a chartreuse flashy fly.  As you can see, there is a lot of room for variation and color mixes with this bug, so you can let your imagination run wild with this one.  Tie some up; tie them on; and go get carpy.
