Here is a classic Royal Coachmen with a twist.  I have used the standard way to tie the Royal Coachman except I used the custom designed and precut size 16 Mayfly Wings by Silver Tip Fly Company.

 

I hope you enjoy the fly!  Any information on the wings you can look at www.silvertipflys.com for materials.
