The "Royal Bomber"

The "Royal Bomber"

The "Royal Bomber" Variant

The Ausable Bomber has been one of the best producing flies I've ever fished. It has fooled trout in all of the streams I've fished. The Royal Coachman has also been a fly I'll reach for in streams that holds lots of brookies. So what I did in this pattern is to take the best of both patterns to create the "Royal Bomber"

I have not fished this fly as of yet but plan on doing so soon.

The "Royal Bomber"

Hook, Mustad 9671
Tail, Golden Pheasant Tippets
Butt, Peacock Herl... Grizzly and Brown Hackle
Body, Red Floss
Front, Peacock Herl,... Brown Hackle
Wing, White Calftail

The Variant has the grizzly and brown hackle wrapped from the back to the front, the same as the Ausable Bomber.

  2. penbayman, Thanks I'll post my results soon.

    Biggerfish, Welcome and thanks for the comment.

  3. Excellent flies as always BT! Classic flies are always fun to fish.

  4. I like the view of the old mustad boxes. The hooks are gone but my boxes remain!!
