The Chocolate Cherry Has Been Producing

Certainly I love fishing the Carp Carrot because it produces so well. Even though presentation is key, nothing produces all the time. The Chocolate Cherry has produced well for me this week. Tailing fish picked up Cherry as did some Shoppers and Grazers.

Recipe for The Chocolate Cherry

Hook: The flies in this box are in #6 5262 and #6 3769.
Thread: Black
Eyes: 1/8 or 5/32 black dumbbells
Tail: Round white rubber
Body: Dark brown chenille
Hackle: Barred grizzly saddle hackle dyed red. (You may have to jack it from some teenage girl's hair if you don't already own it.)

I myself like Chocolate Cherries and so do the Carp.

This fish also fell for the Cherry:


  1. Those look great-- I'll have to tie a few and give them a try!


  2. MrP - Looks cool, very interesting color combo. I cant tell very well from the pic, is the hackle palmered the length of the fly or just at the front?

  3. Hi McTage. The hackle is palmered the length of the body. I had remarkably good luck with this fly yesterday evening. Just made a post.

  4. Glad to have found your blog! Look forward to following along.

    Great fish, great fly, and great post!
