Classic Coachman Bucktail Steelhead Fly

The Coachman wet fly may be one of the oldest surviving flies. It appeared in the early 1800's dressed with a wing of white duck quill sections. A chap by the name of Tom Bosworth gets credit for coming up with the pattern. He was coachman to King George IV, William IV, and Queen Victoria. Who added a bucktail wing or first fished it for steelhead is hard to tell? We have our Coachman Bucktails tied on nickle plated heavy duty Steelhead Irons for extreme durability..
Bucktail Coachman have landed many species of salmonid fishes. Often it is my point fly of choice when fishing a "two fly dropper setup". For me a small size seven has been the best for mid-summer steelhead, but all sizes work and a size five is a good bet when fishing only one fly. Why is this fly so effective? Who knows what transpires inside a steelhead's tiny little brain. Fact of the matter is, many larger than average steelhead have fallen for this unobtrusive pattern.

Carnage Hopper, Tan
Grasshoppers, though a bane of agriculture are the late summer feed of many trout, especially in desert or farmland streams. When fishing the hopper hatch while wading or from a moving boat, target the water close to the grass. Hoppers are most active during the warmest part of the day. You can keep banker's hours and be very successful during peak hopper activity. Use short, stout leaders to enhance target casting. No need for delicate casting in this game, hoppers hit the water with a plop. The sound of a heavy fly hitting the water is often what attracts a trout. Bass in ponds also are tuned into hoppers. Hopper flies constructed from closed cell foam never need dressing, and they land and float low like a natural grasshopper.
