Jan's Carp Tickler

Tailing carp can't resist the tickler. This little gem lands soft and gets down quick with its undersized weighted eyes and slim profile. It's highly visible neon tail is great for sight fishing in even the most turbid water conditions. Best fished at or near the bottom with a one inch twitch to disturb the substrate followed by a long pause. Carp love this worm with rubber legs in chartreuse and orange for low light or murky water, while the red and orange versions seem most productive in bright light and clear water.Size 8.

Greatest Fly I've Used,
November 3, 2014
By: FishinOkie
"I bought this fly with several others when learning to fly fish for bass. I didn't use it for weeks. When I ran out of the others, I tied this one and used it exclusively since then.
It catches everything: bass, sunnies, crappie.
I recommend it to everyone now"

"While I haven't caught any carp yet, this is a fly that gets a couple looks from almost every other fish around. I had a couple bluegill try and take it down, and I think if the hook was a little smaller, I'd have taken them."

Best Carp Fly,
June 25, 2013
By: mikesflies
from Central Ohio
"I have been fishing with this fly or several weeks now and it has become my “goto” fly for carp. Pitch this into the muddy water where carp are feeding and hang on. I have use all 3 colors and had great success with them all. The most amazing thing is I have also caught Catfish, Large & Small Mouth Bass, Crappie, and Bluegill with this fly. I am fishing this fly with 9 foot 3X Mirage leader on a 5wt or 7wt rod depending on the size of the Carp in the area. I recommend you try this fly."
