I've fished the Nine-Three and the Needebah, but never really got excited about traditional flat wings. I read Ken Abrames book several years ago and immediately got hyped on his Razzle Dazzle style flatwing deceivers. I played with the style for a few seasons and really found them to be excellent for late summer and autumn bass and hybrid wiper fishing. Anywhere there's a population of gizzard shad that get to 5" long, this fly has worked.



Do you fish flatwings? I'm particularly interested in feedback from anyone who's used these for big-water trout like Great Lakes browns. I've found this is a great largemouth fly, too.

I've posted full fly tying video through iTunes if you want to download them.

I can't wait to get out on the river and try it. Thanks again, Joe.

Nice. With that guinea fowl cheek that reminds me of one of the variations of the Gibbs Striper bucktail. What species are you fishing those for?

He is a Cape Cod man. He fishes for Stripers and prays that the Bluefish leave his flies alone.

My birding and fishing friends use to drive their jeeps to that light house before the big storm that cut up The Moy. Have you ever heard of The Mooncussers?

Beautiful picture of Monomoy. I love how much that island changes every year. Just before I moved from Mass. to NOVA I painted the outside of Charlie Fuller's house on Morris Island. That is the view from his house. Probably the nicest view on the Cape.
