2014 Fly Swap: Clifton's Carp Bug 2.0

Click HERE to visit the swap summary page.

Tier: Ty Clifton
Location: CO   

About: "I wanted a fly with lots of movement but small. I want my flies to be like high class strippers... Lots of movement. That's what gets our (DSP) fish you know. "

Notes: This is a variation on the fly Ty sent for the 2013 swap where he is looking for even more movement.  This fly is only about a half and inch long and is really discreet.  These kind of small super simple super lightly dressed carp flies are ideal on the Denver South Platte where the carp have been inundated with beefcake crayfish patterns. - McTage
