Crazy Charlie with Mono Wrap

Crazy Charlies were created to fish the flats for bonefish and any other fish that eats shrimp in the flats. A great fly and super easy to tie. I one day ran out of my clear nylon wrap, so I decided to use some mono for the body wrap, and it works well. Maybe more difficult to tie in, but makes the same effect. Below is a list of the materials I used.

Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 size 6
Body Materials: Saltwater Flashabou & 15lb Monofilament fishing line (or if you have a good nylon wrap, use that)
Fiber: Super fiber in cadis brown
Epoxy:Solarez "thin hard"
Flash: Chrystal Flash in Gold
Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed.
Marker: Sharpie in bronze color.

Long story short

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.
