Freshwater Flatwing

The flatwing streamers of Ken Abrames have become a real saltwater / striped bass classic design. I decided to tie one up on a sz. 1 black hook for use in freshwater while fishing for black bass. Fishing last week in Maine I had great time and caught both largemouth and smallmouth with the fly before a pickerel took it… What action in the water! It’s 8″-9″ length really presents a mouthful, yet its light weight enables easy casting with a 6 weight, which is my preferred bass rod. Two thumbs up for freshwater flatwings. I intend to tie some more!
