Backstabber Carp Fly

I don’t feature a ton of carp flies on the blog, but that’s probably because I don’t see them very often and don’t fish for them either. So, for those who chase the Leatherbacks, here is a double shot of carp whip n grin action. 2 versions are included in the video, so get busy.

  1. Hmmm, so what they use are short heavy hooks to enable the carp to suck it into its small mouth? Other than that I would think that other nymphs would work as well? These flies should work for pretty much any species, nice and simple, the way good patterns should be.

  2. I love tying up the backstabber in size 8 or 10 as well. I’ve had tremendous luck catching trout with them as well. It’s a awesome all-around fly.
