Flatwing Step by Step

Discussion in 'Fly Tying' started by {name}, Jun 25, 2010.

    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.

    Cracking sequence of photos. And I'm not even a fly angler.

    Looks stunning. I cannot believe how sparsely tied some of the more successful patterns are

    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.

    Less is more Mark, In both retrieves and dressings.
  11. Blenny

    Firstly thanks for all the replies

    The fish in my avatar came to a yellow and grey flatwing ..as 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


  12. Mullet (foul hooked)

    When you've got the time Andy that would be brilliant. Do you fish the flatwing on a floating or sinking line?

    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 ...
  14. Blenny

    Ok SBS for Sloopy and Hollow ...
