For as long as trout have populated waters around the globe, they have eaten fish eggs. Eggs are among the highest protein and easiest foods for trout to acquire. During the spawn each Spring and Fall, egg patterns are a sure fire winner. Ascent Fly Fishing's Peg-Egg Kit comes with 100 (6mm & 8mm eggs), 20 wide gap hooks, as well as detailed fishing instructions to help you have greater success on the water. Crafted from plastics and resin, almost identical in weight and bouyancy to natural eggs, and hand painted to perfection, the peg-egg is the undisputed king of the spawn. Able to be rigged to slide on your tippet, or tied in place, the resulting hookup is more humane, secure, and has the lowest fish mortality of any fly fishing technique. We encourage you to use wooden toothpicks or a pine needle when pegging your eggs instead of plastic pegs to reduce the amount of angler waste in the rivers. Our eggs are made and painted in the USA.
