I prefer to use a dark brown or black carp fly (such as the Clouser Swimming nymph or black leech Backstabber Carp Fly) so as I can see my fly in the muddy water. And, because many of the lakes are high and brown and most of carp fishing is sight fishing, it leaves us fly fishermen only the random fish that is riding high (near the surface). Be prepared to make your cast quickly and accurately, you will only have a second or two before the carp sounds deeper and out of sight. Often I will position myself in an area were I am seeing a good number of cruising fish, pull off plenty of fly line fro my reel and prepare for a fast game of aquatic Whack-A-Mole!
