Carp Crack

This is an insanely great fly pattern created by Jean Paul Lipton. I first read about it in the "Orvis Beginner Guide to Carp Flies" in 2015. When I first tied it I thought only of carp, however, after looking it over and wanting to give it a go I started using it for other species. I'm glad I did! It has landed me a ton of smallmouth in previous years, it was the top producing pattern on my previosu saltwater trip, and I've even fished it for trout with success under an indicator!

Bottom line is, I have a lot of confidence in this pattern, and it deserves a cast or two from you.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
