Cowen’s Coyote (approx 3 1/2” in length)

The coyote was designed as a fly fishermen’s “roadrunner lure”. The roadrunner is nothing more then a bucktail jig with a spinner blade used to attract fish by way of sound vibrations. It was by far and away the most effective lure I had ever used (pre-fly fishing days). The coyote has been my #1 searching pattern when I am fishing for any game fish that is not visible. It has caught stripers, albies, bonito, weakfish, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, speckled trout, snook as well as all fresh water bass species.
