The “Crazy Carl” has been one of our favorite Bonefish patterns for years. The rabbit strip tail and wing give it great movement and durability. We have found the colors Tan, Pink and White to be most effective. The pattern will also work in larger sizes with or without eyes. If you have a trip to the Florida Keys or Bahamas planned this year has some Crazy Carls in your box.
