Or (often used on the San Juan) as the top fly on a two-fly nymph rig as a kind of neon sign screaming "take a look" so the fish find the second fly, a nymph imitating the dominant food in the water at the time.
They may not take the egg, but you'll likely get more takes on the imitative nymph than you would without it.
I rigged this way often with clients who had trouble getting their fly to drift in the exact feeding lanes of feeding trout.
