Tied on larger hooks it's a sweet bass pattern for when they're crashing bait. It's a neat pattern for fishing smaller streams where browns or other big-mouthed trout hang out. Very natural look, lots of movement, can be tied very naturally... which can work well in small, often clear rivers where you often don't want to reach for that black gaudy sex dungeon. Of course for our rivers out here it can be a sweet representation of trout, salmon, or whitefish fry for chasing our wet side fish.
Continuing with the Ripple Ice Deceiver, here are a couple more versions. The smaller single hook version should work for Coho. I think I can make it smaller for rezzies and SRCs. I'm still working on getting the right amount of ripple ice bulk.
