Carp-It Bomb

Dark Olive, Size 6

When you’re unsure about proper color choice, matching the bottom of the water you’re fishing is rarely a bad choice.  Most prey items like crawfish and damsel/dragonfly nymphs are camouflaged to blend in with their natural environment.  This color matches a local creek during the majority of the year, while the brighter previous slide shows a color I fish more during the summer when we get a fair amount of bright green moss covering the bottom.
