Default hot spot nymphs

II've been doing a little reading and research after becoming curious with the current trend in nymphs with hot spots and bright colors. Had to reload on some basic supplies, but more to come. This is just the start of the experiment. I have more hooks and colored beads and threads on the way. The plummeting bead heads interesting. They change color at different angles. I'm anxious to see how they work. I've taken some basic patterns and just added some color in most cases. I'm becoming more convinced that suggestive patterns may be every bit as effective as the realistic stuff i've struggled to tie for years. Most of these flies will be droppers in a czech system, anchor flies coming up, stay tuned.
