This variation of the famous Flat Car was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See many more of his flies at his page on this site, The Flies of William Lovelace.

Editor's Notes: Flat Car is just one of many Randall Kaufmann flies that have become entrenched in the steelhead fly fishing lore. It was developed in 1989 as a variation of the Green-Butt Skunk and is an effective fly for fishing at dusk.
