with coho I've caught them on anything from rolled mundlers, to flash flies, to wooly buggers in super small sizes....lots of flash or reely dull work best!

Brought down the hamma on some sprangs with 3/0-4/0 flash flies (christmas trees) and big puple/green marabou flies, lots of flash to em'

Coho light up to sparsely tie flies like a Rolled Muddler as opposed to a Muddler Minnow, Christmas Trees, Coho Blue, and two of mine Blue Christmas and Bite Me. Springs light up to bland, dark patterns like Popsicles, Big Black, or my own Flat Black.

in the cap i would use Egg patterns or try small needlefish patterns because they are so close to the salt. fishing egg patterns under a float can be pretty productive :thumbup: I might even get over there and give it a go with my 5wt :thumbup:

I'm surprised to hear that rolled muddlers work in the freshwater as this imitates smaller fish. They aren't really hunting anymore and don't eat much. Not that I know, :-[ I still have yet to wet my flyline in the Vedder or Suicide... :wallbash:
I would have tried a gawdy pink or purple streamer. :-\

I've had decent success with many variations of darker leech and bugger patterns. Just get a few variations/colours of each and try them all till you hit something. Different colours/variations will work better under certain conditions.

Try super small rolled muddlers, mickey finners, and flashabou flies like super small for coho, (sz 5-8) and maybe some wooley buggerds in olive, pink, and purple,they sometime's work. For chinook I use dark purple marabou flies (streamers) go as big as you want because them things are pigs! caught a tonne up north on Pink/Red variations!
