Sean... just finished my 30th... Just doing one of each...leaving the difficult crab patterns for last...Interesting placing the original Crazy "nasty" Charley next to the later more popular Crazy Charley popularized by Orvis for years. The original had Silver flashabou for a tail and body with 15 pound mono for body wrap and two white hackle feathers for wings... the later version was tied with Pearl flashabou and body with V-rib and white Calfs tail for the wings. Also the chain eyes with the original was tied in right up to the eye while the later version was tied a bit back to make room for the calfs hair.When I get my digital camera I will post all with recipes to give the forum a good basis for these flies in this thread.
