Notes: The Royal Coachman streamer is a conversion from the Royal Coachman trout fly. The Royal coachman was itself a variation of the Coachman fly. It was Mr. John Haily who made the modifications to the Coachman for a client. He added the band of red (silk) floss to prevent the peacock herl from unraveling and added barred wood duck for the tail. The pattern has been around for quite some time and so has spawned numerous variations including shammy cloth tails or red hackle tails. Depending on the locality where the streamer is fished may also affect how the fly is tied. Royal Coachmen tied for western waters may have shorter hooks, tapered bodies and longer wings for example.

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.
