Comments

A local pattern, the NEK (Northeast Kingdom of Vermont) Golden Shiner is used successfully for Squaretails, Landlocks, Lakers, and Rainbows in casting and trolling sizes including tandems. I tie it as above, but many others use strands of gold flashabou the same length as the wing along with orange for the throat. The originator is unknown, but there are several variations of this pattern used in this area.
