Yet another fly I could find no reference to on the net, literally only 3 photos that were less than ideal. I believe this is an http://www.idylwilde.com/ pattern because I can’t find a recipe anywhere. It was on my list so I bought one at a local store to replicate. Pretty simple I think; standard hair wing.
There are a couple of tip and trick/techniques that I filmed that apply to this particular fly. Forgive the mistakes as it was my first try with a camera between me and the vise, awkward.
Rough Pattern; Steelhead Coachman
Hook: standard salmon/steelhead in the smaller sizes 4,6,8,10
Thread: Rusty Brown
Tail: Amherst Yellow
Body: Peacock Herl
Rib: Small Oval Silver
Hackle: Brown Saddle but I think Idyl is using something more exotic
Wing: Calf Body
Something Extra if you please: 2-3 strands of Perl flash, I like 3
Head: Clear Cure Goo Hydro
Herl Bodies with the Nor-Vise
