Andrew Kumler recently discovered that coyote fur is dense with guard hairs and makes a mean streamer for Metiolus River bull trout and rainbows. His new pattern: the coyote ugly. “‘Those bull trout on the Metolius are smart,’ said Kumler, a 33-year-old Army veteran who lives in Springfield. He works in the maintenance department at The Register-Guard in Eugene and grew up fishing most of Oregon’s waters. ‘Guys up there are using articulated leeches made from rabbit fur, but the fish are wising up. I have to go bigger.'” Bill Monroe in The Oregonian.
