Default Re: The Official BIG STREAMER thread

Flatwing style flies are my go-to and most of mine are 6-8 inches but I've tied dozens that were both smaller and larger.
Flatwings rely on both what the fish can actully see and what's imagined (like a Clouser minnow) making for a fly that has less material and is therefore easier to cast
This is one of Kenny Abrams "September Nights" and actually has a much
fuller body than most other flatwing patterns due to the "bulk" of the marabou collar
