Naturally, you can use this yarn to make micro eggs or add a contrasting hotspot to an egg, but I use this material mainly as a tag for my nymphs. The worldwide standard red or pink tag flies work well when the tags are made with this small egg yarn.
Started off with three strands, then five, then seven. Getting close to what I want it to look like. Somewhat "fussy" to work with on hooks this small. Seems a lot of work for such a simple fly. Will have to try an even smaller version of the fly with a thinner denier of the GSP thread (thread is awesome, by the way).
This is a great product for making small eggs for trout. sizes 14 down to a 20, Its easy and makes really nice eggs. You can tie lots of eggs with one package. The price is fair, and hey its the original egg yarn!!! Blue is a great color for the rainbows. any color for brooks, and a natural color usually works best on browns, and let me tell you, i catch my best browns of the season on eggs!!!
