Dirty Sub

Detailed instructions for a nice little carp bug that's ideal for waters where the fish prefer a smaller fly.  I like small beadhead bugs for carp but wanted something that would fish hook up while still maintaining the small profile.
Tie them in a range of weights and colours to suit where you're fishing.
