Saltwater Coho Salmon Deceiver

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.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
