How to Tie a Get It Down Pat’s

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “Medium-sized variegated chenille in a color called ‘black and coffee’ is used for the body of the fly. A 2-card width segment is a good compromise between ease of handling and minimizing waste. Secure one end of the chenille to the top of the hook shank, behind the wire wraps and take thread wraps rearward all the way to the bend. Then advance your thread forward back up onto the wire.”
