This week I purchased some foam and attempted my first egg pattern. The first pic is my first fly, the second (orange) pic is my daughter’s first egg pattern and I agree, it looks better. I will attempt to demonstrate tying an egg pattern, but first with this disclaimer. I am not very good at tying flies, but I enjoy doing this and perhaps this will help someone that may be interested in tying their own flies.
After wrapping second piece, between foam, move to the front, pull back the foam and tie off the thread. Some folks use a whip finish, I cannot seem to get that, I just half hitch a couple of times, and I will add small amount of cement on the thread.
This is my finished egg. I like it, just hope that the trout do. If you have any comments good or bad, go to the forum and let me know something. I am also going to put in a few more pics under random flies, different color eggs.
