Put your Faith in Sister Carol my brother! She got the stuff that'll scratch that grass carp itch you got!

I've had them eat green inchworms, elk hair caddis, girdle bugs, Damsel fly nymphs, stonefly nymphs, woolly buggers, poppers and anything that will peak their interest. But they are spooky and wary so go light on the leader/Tippett.

Peddler, thanks for posting this. The fly from Sister Carol looks fantastic.

Last one I caught was on a black/chartreuse woven body woolly worm. I was fishing for bluegill.

Peddler I like that one :)

We have a mess of grass carp in the neighborhood pond. It is a riot asking the guys mowing to blow the grass into the pond. Those carp come up and start gulping like trout on Hebgen Lake looking for callabaetis.

Have hooked many over 20 lbs. Got a few to hand. Last I recollect my hooked to hand ratio is about 1 in 18 with Grass Carp over 20#.

Size #12 GBGRHE nymph and size #12 Tan or Brown EHC tyed on a size #10 2x strong nymph hook have worked best fer me over the years.

Either solo or with the nymph as a dropper. Ain't hard to straighten out a size #10-12 dry fly hook with 5x tippet when leaning hard on a 20#+ fish that might get into
stumps, lily pads, grass, treetops etc...

30"+

38"

Good Luck!
