One of his clients named it as such c.a. 1988, not only because it should be a crime to fish with, but it closely resembles a cop car cruiser. The other fly Lance will be presenting is a slight variation called the “Night Rider” (that of course, glows in the dark).
In further researching these patterns he discovered that there are a few “Coyote Spoon Lures” out there that closely resemble these fly patterns (shown below).
In the world of the Fly Tying these days there seems to be a growing trend in adapting proven spoons, Rapala’s, Jigs, and other effective lure combinations over to fur and feather. As a recent example of this, check out Nick Pujic’s “The X-Stream Furpala” pattern in the recent (Aug/Nov 2006) issue of Canadian Fly magazine. If there is time remaining The Ranger may also demonstrate this pattern for us.
Please note: Materials and tying steps for these patterns will not be shared in the newsletter. You’ll have to show up to see the demo and be prepared to take notes.
