Video: Tying a Leadwing Coachman

February 22, 2012 By: Benjamin Clary

A great choice for drifting or swinging in cold weather, the Leadwing Coachman can imitate a variety of drowned or emerging insects, from caddisflies to mayflies.  While winged wet flies were out of use for some years, they have been rediscovered, mainly because they catch so many trout, are easy, and are so much fun to fish.  Matt Grobert demonstrates how to tie the classic wet fly on a Dai Riki size 12 dry fly hook.
