Real McCoy AP Spinner

Fish cannot resist this parachute extended-body dry fly.


As anglers, we're always looking for the one fly that does it all. The Real McCoy spinner comes pretty darn close. Designed as a realistic representation of Brown Drake and Isonychia mayfly spinners, the smaller sizes are also a strong imitation pattern for Mahogany mayfly spinners. A true AP (all purpose) pattern, this extended body dry fly is a great searching pattern, and its bright post is easy to spot in the water. Deadly during an evening spinner fall or whenever real insects are over the water.
Sizes 10, 12, 14.

Fly tier Captain Ed McCoy grew up in northern Michigan fishing for trout, salmon, and steelhead. He holds degrees in both Zoology and Fisheries & Wildlife from Michigan State University, and now spends his days guiding on the rivers of his youth.

    Large Fish - 6/17/2014
    By: from Manistee River In Michigan

    Went on guide trip with Ed and while floating the river Ed tied this fly on. Fishing had been tough until almost dark when myself and my fishing buddy hooked five large Brown Trout. Two were better than the fisherman but we landed a 19,21 and 24 inch fish. The fly was visible on the surface (good for old eyes) and held up to angry hook ups. I'am not a fly tier so I don't know the fine points of fly tying but I do know the fly catches fish.
