On comes the spawn and out come the fishers that are not afraid to throw egg patterns. One thing is certain, fish eat eggs! If you are having a tough day and need to get the tug on the line and a fish in the net. Give it a shot and you will not be disappointed. This pattern can be a little tricky to get down but with a little practice and repetition you will have a box full of juicy egg patterns in no time.
