2014 Fly Swap: Meetz' Carp Bug

Click HERE to visit the swap summary page.

Tier: Levi Meetz
State: Wisconsin

About:   "This fly is are experimental at the moment.  I am 15 years old from WI, and I recently got into fly tying last winter and carp specifically last fall so I haven't had a chance to go out and really try for carp yet."

Notes:  Levi is a one of a number of high energy gung-ho youngsters in the swap this year.  If I hadn't back-door reserved 3/4 of the spots I am pretty certain a majority of the swappers would be under 20!  It is hard for guys my age to conceptualize but I think that for most younger guys, fly fishing for carp is just part of the landscape.  In their generation, I suspect that it might end up being kindof weird to NOT fly fish for carp.
