"The seed beetle was created out of necessity. There wasn’t a pattern in the fly shops that accurately imitated the insects I was seeing on the river.
Western conifer seed bugs have become an important terrestrial insect on my home river the Green, as well as many of the rivers I fish in the western United States, and fish love them.
Perhaps it is because of the pheromone these insects contain. The pattern was developed to sit low in the surface film, be highly visible, and buoyant. It also does a great job of imitating many beetle species."
