Flatwing Charlie

Up-side-down flies can be super-effective when targeting predators at the bottom in surroundings with snags and other thing the fly can - and often will - get caught in. The up-side-down style of flies often peels off, and can let you fish places that is impossible with traditional flies. In this video we have skilled danish flyfisher and flytyer Morten "Coastfly" behind the vice to tie his version of the classic bonefish-fly The Crazy Charlie, but in a flatwing-version in his unique style with not tying in the hackles, but using UV-resin as attachment.

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.
