Saltwater Coho Salmon Deceiver Fly Tying Video – Using a Fish Mask and EP Sparkle Brush

Coho Salmon are as likely to feed on little shrimp and various larvae as to feed on good-sized baitfish in the ocean, but when they want bait, they will chase streamer style flies with gusto.

I wanted to adapt the Deceiver fly style to a streamer that I could cast-and-strip in the open ocean when I thought I was somewhere within range of feeding Silvers. Pinks and blues are colors I have incorporated into flies that have been well received by Coho in the ocean, so that’s where I started with the design of this fly.

The Fish Mask makes easy work of finishing the eyes and head on this fly.

    Is that the Pro light you are using? and if so have you found that there is that big of a difference? love you vids keep up the great work!

    Zac: yes it is and yes it does. the Pro light costs more but it just plain gets the cure-job done faster and that means a lot when your time at the Bench is precious. Kinda like having sharp scissors too. Thanks for your support, this is fun and there are a TON of new videos on SW flies still to come! JN
