Anadromous Royal Coachman Fly Tying Video

In this video Tony demonstrates how to tie a classic wet fly with a twist. Designed for Rogue Steelhead and Sea Run Cutthroat Trout the Anadromous Coachman is a bit tougher and a bit heavier than the traditional feather wing Coachman. Trout anglers will want to tie it down to a #14. Swing it down and across with a short sink tip or a floating line.

    Very, very cool indeed. The bucktail coachman was the first fly taught to me. Almost always have some coachmen, Brats and Puget Bugs in my boxes for luck. The old basics usually work when some of the new stuff doesnt…..because of the confidence level. Thanks for our efforts. Mitch
