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.

Tied in many colors, this fly is great for imitating a leech or a minnow. Try tying one today!

Or, if you are in a lazier type of mood give it a good dead drift and it can be just as effective. Simple to tie and maybe even easier to fish!
