The Royal Coachman is one of the most iconic and well-known flies in the world of fly fishing. It's a versatile pattern that can be used in a variety of fishing conditions and environments.

The Royal Coachman is typically tied on hooks ranging from size 10 to 18, making it a versatile pattern for various species and conditions.

The body of the Royal Coachman is divided into three sections. The middle section is made from red silk floss, while the front and rear sections are made from peacock herl, known for its iridescent qualities.

The wings of the Royal Coachman are typically made from white duck or goose wing quills. They are tied upright and divided to resemble the wings of many terrestrial and aquatic insects.

The hackle is usually brown or grizzly in color and is wrapped around the hook shank behind and in front of the wings.

The tail of the Royal Coachman is typically made from golden pheasant tippet.

The Royal Coachman can be used as both a dry fly and a wet fly depending on how it's tied. As a dry fly, it's effective at imitating various terrestrial insects and can be particularly useful during a hatch. As a wet fly, it can be used to imitate various aquatic insects and can be effective when fished in the film or just below the surface. Its bright colors and distinctive pattern make it highly visible and attractive to fish.
