Balanced leeches flat out work and the fish in our neck of the woods love em. This particular variation works well in any river or lake that has a heavy perch base. Fish are always looking for the next high calorie snack and when this bug drops in front of them they munch it.
SRF will be putting on a carp clinic September 7th at 9 AM. This course will cover different techniques, flies, fish behavior, and some tricks on how to become a successful carp angler. The clinic will run about 3-4 hours and costs $50 per person. Spots are limited and its filling fast so give us a call or shoot us an email to get signed up.
Carp can be picky fish and will stick their nose up at a lot of offerings. The Hippie Damsel is one of those bugs you can fall back on when fishing gets tough. Killer damsel pattern for any lakes for trout as well.
