Quentin,
Fresh out. I think a Bonito swam away with the last one. I'll tie some up soon. I can tell you this though- It is a flatwing style tie. That means take one good feather (a piece of hen hackle)and lay it down on the hook shank so that it is parallel to the floor. It gives a wider profile from the top (or bottom) but only the width of the feather. It's subtle and not more than 1/3" wide. It's probably evan more subtle once you drag it through the wash ??? I'd like to say this drives fish crazy but I just don't know.
This fly seems to work though.

Lefty
