The New Carpola Charlie Kicks!
Tied up a new version of the Carpola Charlie fly this afternoon - olive and orange. Took it to Rock Creek and gave it a test drive. Started off with the original Carpola in olive and white and landed one, but the rest of the action came on the new version. I did learn one thing however. I left the legs on the olive and orange and little long and three carp came to the fly and felt the legs with their barbules and just stared at it. After cutting the legs the same length of the marabou, the action heated up.
