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.
