Notes: The Coho Blue is a staple pattern on the west coast created by the legendary Roderick Haig-Brown in the 1930's to entice coho into snapping at the fly rather than just following it. Cory modified the pattern for his clients at webflyz.com, modifying the pattern a bit. The fly continues to elicit hammer hard strikes from coho and has also peaked the interest of a number of steep shouldered chrome steelhead and some angry bull trout. It is a simple and effective pattern Cory keeps stocked in his fly box at all times.

The GFF money box

… 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.
