Fry and Eggs
Spring Steelhead Pattern
Salmon Fry are an important food source to be aware of during the Spring. The Fry and Eggs Pattern imitates this part of the Salmon Life cycle. Both spring steelhead and brown trout will feed on these easy meals. This quick tie is set up with a stinger hook, so you can also swing this pattern. Changing the bead color based on water color I think is important too, this is a hot spot in the pattern and fish will key in on certain colors. Also make sure to try pink in the spring.
Attach your eyes onto your potter pin, for the cotter pin we actually cut the 1″ in half. These Salmon Fry are small. Also attach your Power Pro loop for your trailing hook. Any smaller trailering hook will work. Because of high spring water flows I like the C14s. This hook is extremely strong.
