Crazy Charlie

The Crazy Charlie is originally a fly for targeting bonefish - developed on Andros Island in 1977 in the Bahamas by local bonefish guide Charlie Smith and popularized by San Francisco angler Bob Nauheim. It is a must fly to have in the box when fishing the tropics, but it quickly turned out to be a brilliant pattern for fishing all over the world in both salt- and freshwater. In this video we have danish flyfisher and tyer Morten “Coastfly” Hansen behind the vice demonstrating his modern version of the all-time-classic.

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.
