Chuck Kraft released his first fly in 1961. It was called the “Anywhere, Anytime” and was popularized by articles in Field & Stream. Through the 80s he guided an average of 150 days per year. In the early 90s he started guiding in South America, where he developed what was then known as the “Rolex.” It didn't take long before his friends advised him that those watching might have an issue with the name.
