Default Carp buggers

Waterwolf, I'm getting some flies ready for an upcoming trip. Those white buggers that you use for carp, Do you tie them the standard way or sparkle minnow style(dubbed)? Use of beadchain or lead wraps for weight?
Also, do you use maribou or rabbit for the tail? Ever tried mohair yarn?
Seems like I remember you showing me some picts a long time ago of some big carp caught fishing from a kayak or canoe down on Ft. Louden. or the TN river. Am I right? You know I'm over 40 now and the memory is the first to go!
