Father of the Crazy Charlie

Since Sunday morning, every salt water fly fishing angler will fish for Bonefish the same way, every time you’ll tie a Crazy Charlie to your leader you’ll think of Charlie Smith, thanks to whom you have this fly in hands, the one Bonefish cannot say “no”, even Permit sometimes! But most of all Charlie was an awesome guide, a lovely man, he represented fly fishing in the Bahamas, and our tribute to him is little compared to what we owe him. So long Charlie, thank you for the fly.
