How to Tie a Single Wing Flatwing

Producer: Tim Flagler

Joe Cordeiro ties a Single Wing Flatwing baitfish imitation. You’ll want a stout vise and good, strong tying thread for this pattern, but the result is a pattern that captures all the underwater subtlety and visual appeal of saltwater prey. This fly has not only the side profile but the length and bulk of most typical baitfish, and the flat wing sits on top of the fly and creates an undulating motion when the fly is retrieved.
