When fish are looking for eggs, give them what they want. And while you're at it, may as well toss a steak into the mix for good measure.
Steak & Eggs
Or...Green Skittles and Eggs to be exact
Steak and Eggs is a term used within the fly fishing community when we fish a tandem rig consisting of a large nymph and an egg pattern. Here is my favorite version of that combination.
When I am drifting eggs I want my pattern to get down quickly. To do that, I use a #10-12 tungsten beaded Skittle. Most often the chartreuse green variety.
And for the egg?
I prefer a #14 double-egg McFLYFOAM pattern tied on a #14 Mustad #9671 nymph hook. Tie the first egg on at the end of the shank, then another one behind the eye.
