    I made this as a joke, but the real funny thing is that this fly was already in existence and is used all over the place?? Good luck and let me know if you actually catch something with it.

    I give this the most creative design award...I doubt it will work for the carp I cast to.... the corn hatch is not really a factor in central WA

    It seems like a good pattern to me. I have had good luck with a variety of corn flies. One of my favorite techiniques is to chum a shallow stream that has feeding carp with handfuls of corn. Once they start competing for the drifting corn, toss a properly weighted corn fly into the same feeding lanes.

    I have also had luck without chumming first but I don't see much difference between a natural chum line (hatch) and one made by me.

    I will try to post photos of some of my favorites.
