How To Tie The Carp-It Bomb: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Carp-It Bomb

The Carp-It Bomb is Matt Bennett’s pattern and an extremely effective carp fly. It is a buggy pattern that can represent multitudes of different aquatic species. It is a great fly for still water fishing because it will ride hook-up and slide along the bottom of any body of water. You can fish this fly with confidence knowing it will turn some heads and get eaten!
