When it comes to fly tying videos, it is hard to leave INTHERIFFLE out of the short list of best there is

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ith carp fly fishing capturing the attention of even the Pipe & Club crowd, we turned to Intheriffle to see what they had up their lens’. Sho’nuff, they were on top of it.

Then, of course, you need at least one fly that is guaranteed (we’re told) to interest any self-respecting big-ass carp. It’s called the Hybrid Carp Worm (a favorite of carp fishing fanatic John Montana), and it could not be easier to tie. No special nothing – you probably have what you will need right at hand (yes, you can substitute without penalty).

Tip: With your lighter, burn the red velvet chenille tip so it looks like a worm’s head.
