The Speck gets it's name from the speckled CDL hackle used, which provides a speckled or barred leg look to this pattern in the water. This pattern does well for me as a dropper below bassbugs or larger foam patterns for bluegill. It is also a great pattern for crappie when fished alone with a floating line & long leader and twitch-retrieved.
