I have come to the conclusion that this pattern is a fish magnet. I have always had an infatuation with bright yellow bead heads and found them to be a great fish catching tool! I also incorporate a lot of hotspots in my flies to trigger a strike, thus, the pink collar was included.
This pattern doesn’t look like anything specific, but rather vaguely imitates a host of different species. Perhaps it’s a caddis, a mayfly, scud, or the fish only thinks he’s getting a small yellow egg. I, honestly, don’t care what the fish thinks he’s eating as long as he gulps it up fast!
These are tied on barbless hooks to ensure a quick release of the many fish you will catch, or to make it a lot easier to remove one from your ear…
