Carp Crack is a great generalist type pattern that mimics small crawfish or baitfish. The rubber legs and profile of the bead chain eyes are the selling point of this fly to the fish. While the pattern was developed primarily for carp fishing, it is also effective on bass and panfish as well, especially smallmouth bass. The beauty of this pattern is its sheer simplicity. The body is applied using the touch dubbing technique, twisting the thread to form a dubbing brush. This allows for a full body, and buggy appearance.
