The new coot skin arrived! Yippee..my substitute for heron feathers – or so I was hoping.
This really wasn’t an experiment – as others have used coot for a variety of spey flies. But I had to see if it met my expectations of a good looking buggy fly with hackles that would stand up in the faster water fished this time of year.
Time to try it out.
The first outing confirmed it fishability and success. The half-pounders couldn’t stay away from it.
