Here's a story about the name:

I fish 2 and 4 buggers for trout and smallmouth.

Not meaning to hijack but why do they call a green drake spinner a "coffin fly"?

The "Coffin Fly" has become the moniker for the spinner of the Eastern Green Drake (Ephemera guttulata) . The term was coined by Ted Townsend, co-creater of this particular dressing, as he tied the first prototype after attending a funeral. Although I am unsure of the exact details, Ted and Walt Dette created the pattern together to represent the then-prolific green drake spinner fall.

Thank You jayL and jdaddy , good info and pics , i like the 3 hackle fly , they float like corks and will respond well to a good dose of the powder type floatant to "deslime" them after you C n R a fish or three. I wonder if the funeral they attended was in the Catskills , close enough to a stream that maybe there was a spinner in the casket? Too morbid? Oh well. Thanks again guys.
