2014 Fly Swap: Crazy Charlie's by Chase Harmon

Tier: Chase Harmon
Location: Nebraska

About: "I live in the panhandle of Nebraska and primarily fish large mud flats for carp when I am not in Wyoming trout fishing. These particular mud flats have a lot of Fathead Minnows that the carp love to chase and suck up. The Crazy Charlie is a simple, yet effective fly to immitate these minnows. I like to use carp flies that fall slowly instead of plummeting straight to the bottom. I feel that it gives the carp a chance to take a look at the fly on the way down. In most cases, the fly never hits the bottom before getting sucked up by the carp. I fish this fly primarily when the carp are on the move.

Oh yeah, carp on glass is fun!"

  1. Nice! I raise fatheads for fun, interesting your take on that minnow. We have them, wild fish from released feeders, (they are not native,) and our carp eat them and other small fish as well.
