Tying the Gold Steak & Eggs

Gold Steak & Eggs



The Steak & Eggs tandem is a staple in my box, having proven itself time and again. Normally tied with colored wire and furnace hackle, the Gold Steak uses gold wire and grizzly hackle. Adding the Shrimp Ice-Dub to the egg brings a little more flash to a great set of flies. They are one of my most productive tandem rigs in my box. Especially when you need to get deep fast.
