Yes, thanks for that comment. I have made this pattern before in yellow, but I didn't add any ribbing. I will have to see if I have something smaller.

OK... I finally got mine done... and then I took the pics, and when I saw the pics I started picking out every imperfection I saw... One day... sigh... but I had great fun putting this together...

Not as good as many already posted, but I am sure they will catch!

I went along the lines of ChrisinselwynNZ except a steelhead version tied on a walleye wide gap #6 and used a funky little teal feather. The head got chunky and the body is a tad short but last spring (super low and clear conditions) guys were having great sucess with orange micro jigs. I had some OPs but they were on trout hooks and straightened right out.

I jumped the gun here and whipped up a few leadwing variations. Smae hook for steelhead, for when the caddis are popping the leadwing swung through a riffle should get a grab. Trout can't seem to get enough of it so I imagine a few chromers won't pass it up.

twfitw, Yup, cameras have a way of making us all take a closer look at our flies. Rule of thumb is that if you like the pic, then you'll love the fly! I have yet to meet the tyer who thinks he has tied the perfect fly. I think they look good; nice smooth bodies and great choice of hackle on the gray partridge collar.

wt, interesting use of the wide gap #6; definitely looks like a low water fly to me and you'll get good action in the water from the teal, if the water is not moving to quickly. Another role of thumb on this pattern is that the hackle needs be stiffer for fast water; softer for still waters. I've been intrigued by Ard/Fysh's comment about morphing this simple pattern into a steelhead pattern. I think it has a lot of merit, and the variations are almost endless. I like it; looks like it will catch fish.

The Leadwing Coachman is one of my favorite wet flies; I use it in multiple sizes; usually on wet fly hooks. It's a consistent taker when fished across and down with little stops of "lifts" along the way. I think it looks like a "rising almost anything"; particularly in fast water. This pattern will be coming up again a little later. Looks good.

Hi all. I've been away and pleasantly unplugged for a few days. Great tutorial, Allan, and a bunch of nice looking flies here. I'll tie my P&0 tonight and get it posted by this weekend. I'm looking forward to participating more on the rest of these flies...l love talking about flies!

FYI, I just picked up the Spring issue of Fly Tyer, there is a decent article about the versatile hen hackle which could be used on a lot of these flies.

Allen, that's a beauty! I can't wait to see what you come up with after you "warm up" from a three year hiatus.

..........that one's really nice!

Looks like one wrap of hackle to me - just perfect!

What's the thorax dubbing material - is it still magic seal?

Well, my fly is completed and photographed; I'm not sure why but under my 'posting rules' it says I 'm not allowed to post attachments?.. : ( so, I guess no photos from me...
