This fly was designed from the ground up in Denver for South Platte River. The McLuvin' was an immediate favorite for some of the carp anglers who work here in the shop. It has the same unique rocking action as other beaded worm patterns but also combines a sparse but buggy soft-hackle profile. The sparse profile and delicate micro-pine squirrel allow the fly to get down without requiring too much weight and the base design of this fly will use a brass bead instead of tungsten. This allows for a more delicate presentation in medium depths and/or moderate current. If you are heading out to any fishery where crayfish are on the menu, or the Denver South Platte specifically, the McLuvin should be well stocked in your carp kit.
