    Question Carp With Bread Imitation

    Has anybody caught carp on a bread imitation fly?? i was at a dam today throwing bread in to feet ducks and then carp(i think) started sucking the bread off the surface.. would a bread imitation have the same affect?? anybody made any bread imitations?? would i just use some white foam and stick a hook through it??

    Cheers
    Andrew

    I've tried drifting a big deer hair bomb on the surface and also sunken, dead static fishing....and nothing, nada...absolutely no interest at all. Maybe I was just unlucky, but give me a crust of bread to put on my hook rather, I'm done with a bread immitation

    Unlucky then, also a good sunken fly is the white death which has caught its fair share of fish.

    Would it be un Fly Fisherman like to throw some bread into the water and place my Foam & hook in amongst the bread?

    You decide, put it this way. I dont chuck minced chicken livers into the water to catch trout like I've heard some have done.

    The way I have seen carp sucking at bread, I have my doubts if you will fool them with a bread immitation in amongst the real thing. They are actually extremely clever fish, and from what I have observed they are seldom hurried into feeding, instead they take their time, sniffing, bumping, sucking, blowing before swallowing the hook....now why would they do that with a static immitation!

    a little bit of polar plus or white egg yarn "spun" around the hook with a pice of hd foam superglued on top works magic

    you can use a large piece of foam and have it boyant "crust"
    or a medium for the bread "emerger"
    or smaller still for the neutral "soggy " sinking bread

    Have you personally had success with this?

    Believe me, I'm just as curious as Andrew to know what will work, it is just that my first few attempts have been extremely disappointing to say the least. I havent tried chumming yet.

    yes ive had good success with this method
    its way more effective with chum or in a place where the carp expect to find bread (ducks /kids) but can work unaided
    I originaly tied them for the mullet but also saw carp sucking on bread

    and Chris it "almost" counts as a dry !!!!!!
