Just wondering what are the best size and color of hooks for fishing single egg or small egg clusters with a fly rod? Some people only use red hooks, while I have been told by others use silver or black.Also, anyone on here have any success fishing chenille crystal eggs?

Not sure what your crystal chenille eggs look like, but I tie some egg-style flies with flashy cactus chenille and they rock. I tie really heavy eyes in the middle of a regular steelhead hook, and wrap chenille in figure-eights to make a ball. They end up being bigger than real eggs, and different colours too. Electric blue is my fav. They go deep fast, and fish seem to like putting them in their mouths. I have had better luck with them for salmon than steel, but that's probably because I haven't fished them very much in the winter.
