GRTU Fly Tying Video Series – Carp-It Bomb by Matt Bennett
Tune in to see Matt Bennett, owner of Fly Geek Custom Flies, tie the Carp-It Bomb.
This fly began as an upsized-version of a simple marabou damsel for local carp, sunfish, and bass. It’s evolved into a leggy. gnarly nymph with a ton of movement that will catch just about any species around. Tied with Pat Cohen’s excellent Carp Dub, this will pass for a larger nymph or smaller crawfish with ease. Not just for carp, the chrome-legged versions have become a popular small water bass fly as well!
