How to Tie the Pat’s Plus

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “UV cure resin works wonders when it comes to anchoring the tying thread and tidying up the wing case. There’s no need to make a huge bulging wing case, just enough to coat it and the thread wraps. When you’re satisfied with how things look, turn on the torch and give the resin a healthy shot of UV light to cure it. You can then trim the tails off to about a full hook in length. Then trim the back legs so they extend about halfway down the tail. Try to get the front legs cut to about the same length as the back legs.”
