Nice job steelguy. Made me tie up a few to try on my next PNW trip to Washington State. Typically I escape spring & fall. Thanks for reminding me that this pattern works.

Such a great pattern !!
Very nice tying, it certainly is a good looking fly and would give me confidence to swing it
How many fish does it take to have the herl and floss body shred ??
The reason I ask is because it never took more than one fish to destroy a herl body on me. Therefore now days I counter-wrap every herl body and usually each floss body, especially the floss tags !! A big pet-peeve of mine is swinging a shredded floss tag. I know others that love a shredded fly and that's cool .... you'll never catch me swinging a shredded fly

Sorry for the mini rant ... very nice fly

Youtube video I followed suggested tying in the 8 strands of herl twisted around a dubbing loop and then palmering in the herl. I like your idea Mike of also counter-wrapping the floss and will definitely add that to the next fly.

Funny, I keep praying a fish will come and shred my fly.

I twist the herl around my thread, like simple dubbing, and it lasts well enough - and I don't think the fish mind a few sprigs sticking out. I fish them during lowish flows during winter.

Mike may recognize this one. It's not a coachman but it is one of his. I'm just happy it got some attention. Sorry this pic is not that good.

Wow Dan, talk about chewed !!

Guys, I like it when my flies get chewed up by the fish, that means they wanted to eat it, which is a great compliment.
However, once a fly is chewed, it goes into retirement, it has done it's duty.
As far as others swinging chewed flies ... if that's your thing, then keep swinging
