found a hit on google.com for carp.net which says brown and white hair arranged to look like a piece of bread.

We fish a fly called a breadcrust. It is a soft hackle type nymph.

hi

thanks for the foto! i must say that i don`t know if the fly that i mean in englisch breadfly is. in german it`s "brotfliege" and i have it one on one translated. this fly is used for carp fishing and is so successful that it is on some waters in germany not permitted. i have one photo, but i don`t know of this is a good one. if you want to see it look at "Streams and Stillwaters" and than in the "Archive of Favorite Trout Flies". there is another thread of me. it`s called "bredafly", too.

what is the breadcrust used for? is it a succssefull fly?

if anybody else knows information over the breadfly or have a foto of it send a reply. thanks.

greetings marc

Marc,

The picture you posted on the other thread looks like you would tie it like a "Bomber" pattern. Spin deer hair around a heavy hook and then trim with a sharp knife.

hi

first i must say that the translation with a translation service isn`t such a good idea! i understand realy nothing!! it`s easier for me to read the english text than the translated german. the translation programs are not realy good.

second, thak`s for the answere.

i know now what a breadfly looks like. look at the photo...

greetings marc

I appreciate the commentary. I guess a breadfly is just that - the look of a hunk of bread molded on to a hook.
