Proven pattern that seems to work well when the sun is high. Developed on the waters of Taneycomo by manager Shannon at River Run Outfitters, but I found it works well on Beaver Tailwaters as well.
Tied on size 16 hook. Lt. Cahill 6/0 thread. Copper tungsten bead and copper wire. Pearl tinsel on top of thread base in either Flashabou or spool. Also have used opal holographic tinsel.
Here’s the official recipe found at: River Run Outfitters
