Custom Saltwater Flies by Captain Charles Crue
This version of Lefty's Deceiver imitates many small bait fish such as silver side minnows. The red behind the eyes gives the illusion of open gills.
Captain Crue founded Channel Edge Charters in 1996. His guide specialty was fly fishing for striped bass and bluefish on the Merrimack River and Plum Island inshore waters. After providing purchased flies for a short time he began tying his own versions of the most successful flies for his clients to use during his charters. This evolved into creating many of his own fly patterns, some of which are included in fly tying books and published articles.
