I had a few requests for a step by step for the flatwing pattern I sell

Hook: Gamakatsu SC`15 3/0
Thread ; White UTC 140
Tail Support: White Bucktail and a feather from a metz cock cape
Tail : white Metz Grade 2 mico barb hackles
Throat , Cheeks and Top wing : White Bucktail
Flash for tail : Mirage flashabou
Flash for body: saltwater UV flash
Eyes: Jungle cock

Step 1 : hook in vice

Step 2 : Form a thread base

Step 3 : place a clump of white bucktail on top of the hook shank and secure with 3 loose turns

Step 4 : Using your thumb and forefinger spread the bucktail evenly around the hook . then secure it with some tight wraps causing the bucktail to flare . add a drop of varnish or superglue

Step 5 : on top of the bucktail tie in a stiff feather from a cock cape , there is a natural curvature to these feathers , tie it in so it curves up

Thats the tail support done

Now for the tail

Step 6 : Tie in the first tail hackle ... If you have difficulty getting it to sit straight on top of the Bucktail and support hackle . try adding a dubbing pillow for it to rest on

Step 7: Tie in the 2nd tail feather a few inches longer than the first , tie in some flash at this stage too , then add the final tail feather again a few inches longer then the first ,add a drop of varnish or superglue

Step 8 : Using thread try and even out where the tail joins the hook and wrap with UV flash .. I use bug bond for durability but varnish or superglue will suffice

Tail complete

Step 9 : Invert the hook in the vice ..or turn it if you are using a rotary vice and tie in a sparse throat of Bucktail

Step 10: tie in sparse bucktail cheeks on both sides of the hook

Step 11: Tie in a sparse top wing of Bucktail

Step 12 : tie in some peacock herl on top of the top wing .add a drop of varnish or superglue

Step 13: Tidy up the head of the fly then add eyes of your choice , I'm using jungle cock here . Varnish head

Congratulations .. you've just tied a flatwing .

Try different colour combinations .. white and chartreuse , yellow and gray, lavender and grey ..all black etc

Top job.

We will be swimming your flatwings in the coming days/weeks Andy.
It's been a while coming but I can't wait to flyfish on the skish this season.

Thanks Andy looks great have you had a lot of success with this fly? I'm just getting into fly fishing so this is great, I may tie a few tonight, I've got most of the materials already.

Flatwings are my favorite bass fly and they work great in different colours.

Andy this is the best step by step I have seen and will definitely be tying some of these up. Thanks Andy.

Firstly thanks for all the replies

The fish in my avatar came to a yellow and grey flatwing did twenty odd others over a three day session

If anyone wants a step by step for any of the patterns I tie ..just ask .. although it wont be this week I'm flat out tying for the Irish International Fly Fair

Thanks again Andy - a SBS for hollow tie and sloopy droopy would be great too when you get a chance!

Paul - depends on the water depth but I prefer swinging the big long un's through current so I tend to fish Rio intermediate outbound shooting head or the DI3 of the same line ...
