You can still get them direct from the maker in 65mm, 85mm & 105mm
but I have not seen one of that size before!

The 65 mm is my go to flathead lure. 
I remove both trebles and run a single hook in the rear hanger.
Makes it much easier to release fish.

I also still have a few.
I use them as a mini lure by adding a split shot a 10 centimetres or so in front of the fly.
Great for skinny water luring where you're only casting short distances.

Smallest bass caught on one would have been stretching to reach 10 cm.

Lucky for him I already had one in my tank.
