Squirmy Estaz Egg

I've been tying a ton of Squirmy Wormy flies over the past year or so and I usually end up with a little tag of leftover material for every fly I tie. I've been collecting these bits and it occurred to me that they might be useful for adding to an Estaz Egg, adding another trigger point to the fly.

I use the standard size of Estaz and like to match the squirmy color to the Estaz color, but you can mix it up. A white wormie with an orange body would be a killer combination.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
