Yes, it was the current issue of Flyfishing in saltwaters that I was referring to. The same magazine ran a story on the 20th anniversary of the fly and quoted Bob's history of the fly which is the same story that Dan has given us. The picture posted was the same one posted here that showed Bob and Charlie with their plaques and Charlie's sons. There was no credit given to charlie for tying, only input. I believe it was the issue that had the Patagonia owner's daughter was on his shoulders fishing a flat. I was disappointed that the magazine was not aware of its previous reporting.
Dan, I believe that Bob posted on this forum somewhat addressing Charlie's memory of the post was a very polite rebuttal and Bob clearly stating that Charlie had not stated tying when the fly was created.
