Little pink stuff

With an inch or two of new snow on the ground, winter has descended. Fly-rod guides are iced. Which means it's time for small pink shit. Soft-hackled Sow Bugs, scuds, worms, and my personal favorite, Dave McKee's Shrimp Cocktail. Think what you will, but I am convinced trout eat all of these flies (with the possible exception of the worm) for eggs. It's a nice little trick to fish an egg, without actually fishing an egg.

Funny you posted this. I was just working on a post about y2k's and egg patterns. I might have to tie a few of those cocktails now too.

It's definitely my fave little pink thing.
