A few days ago, I talked about how I was tying up a ton of egg patterns this winter. It’s steelhead season now, and spring trout (stocked or otherwise) will take these patterns. Love the patterns or hate them, nobody can dispute their effectiveness.
Tonight, I’m tying the Antron Egg fly pattern, particularly the style that was shown by Tim Flagler from tightline videos. Tim makes it look effortless as he’s tying, but I’m finding a little difficulty keeping the slick fibers from gapping and clumping when flipped backwards over the dubbing. We’ve all got shortcomings. Check out the video below, and grab your bobbin to crank some out.
