Is it debris, is it a damsel, I’m not sure carp know either, but they slurp it up. I came up with this pattern after fishing a vegetation riddled pond with carp feeding in and on said vegetation. Enter the Wakame Salad. Wanting a fly that was enticing both on the the fall, and off the bottom, I chose rubber legs for the tail, and a soft lively dubbing to create some movement and resistance. Light in weight, keeping it stealthy, and as previously mentioned, great on the fall or off the bottom.
