The fly I’ve chosen for this issue is an excellent choice for fly fishing for carp just under the surface. In designing the AR Carp Tuty, I originally took inspiration from classical midge patterns that are commonly used for trout while still water fly fishing. I initially tied the AR Carp Tuty for this purpose using larger sizes, since carp must be enticed immediately when the fly falls in their territory. While relaxing in the summer sun and taking in oxygen above the surface, they have to have a reason to actively hunt and suck up your fly like a greasy morsel. This month there’s still a chance to spend nice and successful days fishing for carp at the water surface! So don’t hesitate, tie a couple of my patterns and try your luck with the AR Carp Tuty! In this gallery you can step by step instruction for tying this maximally effective carp fly!
