    Nice Hans, thanks for posting. This is tied on a 12, but since it is "short bodied" would it pass for an 18 or 20 if that was the size the fish were keying on? The reason I ask is it would be easier to tie and tie on than a 20 for those of us less skilled....

    It is an egg pattern, the larger hook helps it to sink and also with the aim of hooking more serious size fish...

    Hans,
    Interesting egg pattern. Where do you fish it?

    Untested as yet, Byron, but tied up for the trout hovering up the eggs downstream of the reds on the pacific north-west rivers.
