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.
