I crossed paths with a gentleman fishing a pattern like the top one about a week ago and he got a fish right behind me. Said it's his favorite this time of year also.Pretty tough to go wrong with any of these in the summer months. I call these "Gram Nasties"- based on the lines of a song that got stuck in my head, and the name just stuck. The original pattern was tied on a size 14 jig hook with an oversized tungsten bead. These are 16s with more natural sized tungsten bead, and a flashy abdomen instead of dubbing. I really like to fish them when there's sunlight to reflect off of the flash and wings.
Colors go: Hare's Ear, Psycho Pearl, Psycho PMD, PMD
