    Apologies if this question has been asked on the forum previously , I couldn't find anything searching through the historical posts.

    I am after tying pattern for a fly called the crackleback, I have been told it is very successful in the US.

    Any website links that have a photo and tying instructions would be appreciated.

    Just another follow on the Feather Craft note - guy claims he invented the crackleback - he may have. Catalog is a fun read. Website is
