Crazy charlie origin

Has anyone read the piece on Charlie Smith. It reads to me as though Charlie is saying that he came up with the fly before he fished with Bob Nauheim and The Fly Shop was involved in the initial distribution of the fly. I thought Bob said on this board that Charlie did not tie flies when they met and Bob created the fly with input from Charlie. Also, I thought Orvis was the party that changed the name from nasty to crazy and marketed the fly.
