I think that Charlie may have told Bob what kind of minnows were being chased by the bonefish and what they looked like, although I'm not sure. Charlie was certainly poling the boat and his exclamation "Dat Fly Nasty" gave the fly it's original name. So yes maybe Charlie deserves some credit for the inspiration of the fly but not the actual tying - creation of it. In fact, according to Bob, Charlie was astounded it worked because it was not a typical bonefish fly of the era.

Both are holding an award plaque, so I assume Charlie got credit for something having to do with the fly.
