Flipped Blue Flash Rolled Muddler Coho Salmon Fly Recipe

The Flipped Rolled Muddler was originally given to me by Peter C. of the Osprey Fly Fishers. Peter told me it worked great for coho salmon in the Harrison River and because of the way it’s tied it wouldn’t snag dog salmon like the conventional rolled muddler.

The bead chain eyes on the top of the hook sank flip the fly over so it rides with the hook point on the top. In my hands this fly has proved itself a great success for coho in a variety of rivers and estuaries. The cutthroat love it too!
