    I just can’t bring myself to fish or tie an egg pattern, I guess I’m losing out.

    @KC – because?

    If a fish will take it for a food item, I’ll throw it. I’m not missing out just because it’s not an insect. Bugs aren’t all that special anyway…just ask any self-respecting largemouth bass.

    It reminds me to much of chucking and ducking! Those days are over and I’m not looking back but by all means fish what makes you happy. I try not to push my kind of fishing on anyone.

    Just my 2 cents

    I was tying some similar lifters last night – simple, effective, what’s not to like?
