The Story

Probably the most familiar Brook Trout fly pattern there is. Originally designed as a Coachman imitation, the red floss was wrapped around the body to make the fly more durable against the teeth of Maine brook trout. First designed in 1878 by John Hailey and named by L. C. Orvis, the brother of Orvis founder Charles F. Orvis. A true bit of angling history. Color, Red.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trout fly Tried this fly for the first time today. Caught trout right off the bat with it. I was amazed at how aggressive the trout hit this fly. Will be using this fly often.
