Fly Patterns

Crazy Charlie: Pink & Red


Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

Fly-Tying Materials

  • Mustad 34007SS Hook (#4)
  • UTC 210 Thread, Fluorescent Shrimp Pink
  • Brass Eyes, Medium, Gold
  • Krystal Flash, Red/ Pearl
  • Sparkle Braid, Peach/ Pearl
  • Bucktail, Red
  • Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, Hardener, Clear (#2103)

Design Inspiration & Detail

One of the simple and great flies for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. The light pink Sparkle Braid body and lighter red bucktail are perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. As always, adding a splash of crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
