Weekly Fly Recipe: The Green Fox Coho Crusher

Weekly Fly Recipe: The Green Fox Coho Crusher

Coho Beware!!!

Originally designed by Andrew Redmont for Harrison river coho salmon, this fly has proven to be successful for coho salmon all around BC in both fresh and saltwater.

The Green Fox is most successfully fished using a clear intermediate sink tip or full sinking line with 12lb RIO fluorocarbon leader and a slow but steady retrieve. Hang on tight because coho bite the Green Fox with fierce aggression!!
