Flatwing Streamers – Frank G. Swarner

I don’t link to forums often, but there are a few gems to be had in terms of tutorials. I’d like to see these forum tutorials put into a more formal article on one of the fly tying magazine sites at some point. At any rate, it’s a great looking pattern with a well written tutorial.
