I'm just starting to tie up flies for this fall's coho fishing. Wondering what everybody ties (buys) as their must haves. I usually tie a selection of rolled muddlers (olive and regular), olive or black wooly buggers, red and white or green and white clousers with bead chain eyes and christmas trees. All in size 8 and 10.

I like rolled muddlers, coho blues, mickey finns, x-mas trees, buggers (black and olive), egg-leeches, and on occasion, small GP variations. I tie most of my patterns fairly sparse as I find overdressed patterns do not work as well. Boy - do I hope that we have a good coho run in the Vedder and Chehalis. I heard that the Vedder run might be weak again - but we'll have to wait and see... :? . Good luck and PM me if you want tying instructions...

I forgot - most of my hook sizes range from 6 - 10, with 8 being the most versatile... :) . I do remember that sometimes coho will take ridiculously small patterns at times!

Juat wondering if any of you fly tyers would be interested in doing a fly swap with a coho theme. I've been doing fly swaps for trout flies with people in the states and it works great for getting a variety of flies. Anyways if anyone's interested let me know and I'll give you more info.
thanks
