Not really, the scud hooks are offset and the Daiichi 1560 and TMC 3761 are 1x long...thanks for bringing that up...I try to be aware of whether or not I am diminishing the hooking capability of the hook I use - by the bead size I employ...

That Purple Flash Bang and the Prismatic Winged Weevil look look like they could work on GL steelhead too. Nice ties all of them.

The above pattern came about as a result of this VERY successful pattern, from Craig Matthews, that I use in the Spring and Fall on the Owens River here in CA:

GUIDE SERENDIPITY

HOOK: TMC 5262 #14-#18, TMC 3761 #14- # 20, Daiichi 1560 #14-# 18

THREAD: Gordon Griffith 14/0 sheer, Black

BODY: 1/3 Strand Chartreuse Zelon or 1/2 strand spooled Antron, twisted

WING: White Zelon

NOTE* Sometimes I will mix in a strand of Pearl Krystal Flash or Olive Krystal Flash twisted into the Antron or Zelon...

I will use this pattern (SERENDer) in March and April as a dropper under the standard March Brown soft hackle...those guys are clingers, so the nymphs are most readily available just as emergence begins. In colder water, they emerge from the nymphal form at the bottom of the water column...as the water warms, they emerge higher up...weight accordingly and find da' sweet spot.I believe the segmentation effect is a definite trigger...

That Guide Serendipity is a real killer during the "Mother's Day Hatch"...
