The Story

Ben Turpin, an Orvis-Endorsed Guide, designed this fly to imitate the actual size of a trout egg and to have a hook that was barely visible to the trout. This trout fly is best fished in a tandem rig with another egg with the flies about 8 inches apart and a small split shot between them. Two eggs rolling along the bottom always work better than one. Turpin says this fly fishing tactic usually produces some of his largest trout each year.

Size: 20

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective I am very happy with my purchase. I bought a couple of them in red. While relatively new to fly fishing, I have had success with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made I purchased these last year on our annual fall trout trip and I caught more on these eggs than any other flys for the second year in a row.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should catch fish Looks to be of good quality. About what one would expect in a fly. Will soon find out if fish appreciate it as much as I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Egg Pattern I typically always drop this behind another larger egg pattern (yellow/chartreuse) on a smaller tippet . The red pattern for me easily outfishes any other egg pattern I’ve ever used and I always make sure to have several with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality tied fly. I'm sure this will be a lot of fun slaying some trout later.
