I tried to take a picture of the fly several times but this is what you get with a phone. Although, the fish came out great. The Crazy Charlie is a simple pattern but is a killer on white bass if you use chartreuse and red.
Hook - size 8
Eyes - dumbbell/bead chain
Thread - yellow or which ever you choose.
Body - Silver chenille
Wing - Mallard flank
Tail - flashabou
It's way too windy - much more windy than yesterday. I still need to make an anchor for the kayak. I've got a lot on my plate today . . . guess I may not fish today but will probably take the kids out to the pond tomorrow. It's supposed to be 75 today - that water is still a bit chilly - late warm up from having a late winter(s), lol.
I was casting out into about 5 to 6 feet of water and stripping this fly in slowly as to land crappie. They were short striking and tugging a tiny bit. I landed a bunch of undersized crappie. They weren't schooling around any structure - at least, I didn't see any structure. I am used to landing them on Clousers - pink and chartreuse Clousers but the Crazy Charlie fly will do.
