Coho Herring Bucktail Tube Fly Tying Video with Steve Farrar’s Blend and Gliss n Glow

This is a big, juicy Bucktail style fly tied on a Tube – a fly intended to stimulate a juicy Herring and induce a savage grab from a Coho in the 15 to 20 pound class. Ha ha. We can all dream, right?

This Tube Bucktail incorporates natural colors with modest flash In contrast to some of the shockingly hot PINK Bucktails that we Salmon Bucktailers often fish in saltwater. The fly catches silvers and Albacore, so you can feel utmost confidence when you tie it on and hang it in your prop-wash.
