I have a general idea of how these glo yarn egg flies are tied (I guess take 4 strips .. yada yada), i know.. easy stuff, but i keep messing them up, or I have to spend an hour trimming them to shape. I know there is a easy way but I can't find detailed instructions anywhere. If anyone could help that would be great!

thanks,

kirk Question

The single egg, or "Glow Hook" is a great pattern. We've used it here for Steelhead, Coho Salmon, sea run cutties and Bull trout in our rivers for years. Tied in colours anywhere from deep red to chartreuse and mixing colours is always a good bet. It's a very simple pattern to tie and if you asked the multitudes of fish we've caught with it, being totally realistic isn't really necessary. As long as it's trimmed properly and while fishing you trim off any loose yarn and keep it egg looking, it will catch lots of fish.
