Jay’s Total Domination Steelhead Egg Pattern

Jay Nicholas of Caddis Fly Shop shows us how to tie his Total Domination Steelhead Egg pattern, so named for one of his favorite beers (Ninkasi Total Domination). As with many steelhead egg patterns, Jay’s Total Domination Egg works great fished on a dead drift, especially when paired with a big stonefly nymph under an indicator.
