For tying blood dots and other egg patterns, this stuff can't be beat for the price. I can ty up tons of patterns with only 1 bag! Egg as the outside and apricot supreme as the inside is killer for trout!
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.
My favorite material for tying my egg patterns! Durable stuff, you can tie a significant amount of eggs with 1 bag (50+ easily). Usually the only pattern that I bring with me when I fish, because its just that good & dependable! Partnered with the glo-bug dispenser, these can not be beat!
I use this mostly to tie eggs, and I have used other brands. This brand has great colors, easy to use, and holds up in the water without any fade for me. I do not know how to describe it, but it is easier for me to split the threads down to the size I want without it "sticking" to any little rough edge on my fingers. So, it is easier to use, for me.
