Glo-Bugs Yarn

Reviewer: A viewer from KESWICK, VA USA

The art of tying eggs is incredibly hard. While this certainly isn't the hardest method, it certainly is not the easiest either. Using this yarn was much easier than molding glue eggs as I am accustomed too. HOWEVER, it does take some skill to get the material to shape into a perfect egg. I tried some of my friends McFly foam, and it was noticeably easier to tie these little flies. However, the Glo-Buggs Yarn comes with more material and is much less expensive.
If you are sold on the Yarn, I would recommend the "Alaskan Roe" and the "Sockeye" colors, however I must note that the "Alaskan Roe" is much closer to an orange than a deep red. It is perfect for mimicking fresh spawned Sockeye eggs.

A must for steelheading

Reviewer: A viewer from Bridgeville, PA US

This is a very easy to use egg yarn that is used to make the glo-bug eggs that are a must have for steelhead fishing. Try several different color combinations so you will always have what the fish want.

The ol' egg material

Reviewer: A viewer from Greenville, SC US

New flies like the y2k bug still make use of this older material. Tying eggs with this stuff is really easy if you check out a tool called an egg gun (ink pen w/out the core). If your into catching trout its always a good idea to have some obnoxious egg pattern in the box to use when no one is looking. A newer product competing now is called McFly Foam.
