Crazy Charlie

Crazy Charlie

One of the all-time Classic bonefish flies, the Crazy Charlie is an excellent general purpose fly for a variety of flats fishing situations.
The "Skinny Water Charlie" (not pictured) is also known as a "Blind Charlie" - this fly is the same as the Crazy Charlie, but tied without the bead chain eyes - a very lightweight fly for shallow water and delicate presentations. The "Skinny Water Charlie" that we offer features a monofilament weedguard.

The "Charlie" style of fly has been imitated and adapted to a wide range of bonefish flies, and a good selection of these flies belongs in every bonefish angler's box. The #4 fly is approximately 1 1/2 inches in length. Similar patterns: Crystal Charlie, Gotcha.

The slim-profile "Bonefish Box" by Anglers Image shown below is probably the best box we have ever seen for carrying standard bonefish patterns - modern "slit foam" design holds flies securely and is easy to insert the flies in. This box will hold approximately 24 standard sized bonefish flies, but still fits easily in a shirt pocket - something that many boxes are advertised to do, but few achieve. The lid of this box is clear, which allows the angler to view the contents of the box before opening it - a real advantage while wading the flats or preparing to tie on a new fly from the deck of a bouncing boat. Dimensions are 5 3/4" x 3 5/8" x 7/8" (14.5 cm x 9 cm x 2.2 cm). Click photo shown below to view the box empty.
