Tying Instructions:

This fly is great for Coho in the salt when there are no bait fish around. In sandy bottom bays dredge it along the bottom. In open ocean situations, work it near the surface. Imitate the movement of the shrimp with a long draw retrieve and an occasional popping of the rod tip.
