Developed by Ed Story in the mid 1950's, the Crackleback and the method(s) to fish it were an instant success. Now fished worldwide. Many will use nothing else! TO FISH: Dress the hackles with floatant and fish dead-drift as a floating terrestrial in the surface film. If no hit near the end of the drift, jerk the fly beneath the surface and skip it across-stream with the rod tip, or strip it back to you with the line-control hand as a moving sub-surface emerger. TO FISH DEEP: Use a full sinking line (or sinking leader system) with a split-shot on the tippet 15" above the fly. Skip or strip the fly just off stream or lake bottom. EXPECT NEAR INSTANT SUCCESS.
