PSA #6: Keeping your kids off crack

It's dawned on me that I haven't published a recipe for my infamous Carp Crack pattern. I realize that I could pull a dick move and not disclose the simplicity secret behind this lethal pattern. I could direct you to my online store for some or tell you to go find a fly shop that carried Idylwilde flies. I'm not gonna be that guy, at least for today. Many of you have asked for it, so here it is.
