How To Tie The Critter Getter: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Critter Getter

The Critter Getter does exactly what the name describes. It is a buggy, swimming fly that is a great option for still water fishing because it is meant to replicate an injured leech. It has a gentle presentation when it hits the water but gets down fast to the feeding zone of any carp. It will be a great addition to any carp box and will prove its value when it is in front of any carp.
