Design Inspiration & Detail
The inspiration behind the design included melting together the “easy to fish” characteristics of a bendback, an easy to tie Crazy Charlie pattern, wire wrapping for additional weight, and a nice burnt orange color to simulate shrimp. Shrimp on the barB for Bonefish!
This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – many other species will also take the fly.
