Coachman swap

Recommended Posts

Here we go, this is a Coachman swap, open to the first 12 with an Im in, lets all be sure to tie a different pattern, so we can all have a full collection of Coachman flies. Due date is Nov 10, remember if you do not send a SASE your flies will be devided amongst the other swappers, and also as of my last hosted swap, I got a cool idea, that Im doing for now on, the first package to get to me, gets 3 extra flies, I know its not much, but I thought it was a neat idea. Lets fill this one up guys!!!

I'm in with a Bucktail Coachman. :headbang:


I found the pattern in Dave Hughes' American Fly Tying Manual.


It's is listed as a sea-run cutthroat fly. After a little more looking around I found that it also works well on land locked salmon, steelies, rainbows, and a number of different panfish. Seems to be a good all around fly. I think it will make a nice addition to the group. ;)


Thanks for hosting flytime.


I'm going to PM Spanky and see if he'll get in to.

I can only send a SAEWSPMI since US stamps are hard to come by in Europe (surprisingly)...


SAEWSPMI = (self adressed envelope with some paper money inside)


Hope that will be accepted by FlyTime... :unsure:
