I'm with you, I find that I gravitate towards my flat-wings because they cast so much better. But they take me like an hour to tie! This looks like a good compromise.I tied up a few of these in chartreuse and white and fished them this past weekend, so decided to tie up a few more in different color combos. Really liked the way they swim, don’t really tangle and simple to tie; buck tail, flash, barred hackle, small amount of red/orange ep fibers and eyes. Stinger hook with the body tied on a waddington shank which I like because it adds a little weight and it’s easy to tie on.
Trying to find some alternatives to stinger clousers which are not my favorite to cast. Not that I will stop using them, I’m not crazy .
