McFly Foam Creates Best Egg Patterns
By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter
Over the weekend I almost depleted my supply of fall egg
patterns. Last night I pulled out the vice and materials to whip up a variety
of salmon egg patterns so I did not have to run to the shop for eggs. McFly
Foam has been in the market place for a few years and it flat out rocks. This
stuff is almost magical and this forum is the perfect place to share these
You can tie the large fat eggs for attractors or micro-eggs
on size 20 hooks. The colors are brilliant and very interchangeable and the
ability to create Jerry Garcia Tie-Dye eggs is remarkably easy.
The old Glo-Bug yarn has been the traditional material, but
McFly Foam is my material of choice. You have probably cussed your egg patterns
in the past, but a few little trade secrets will give you huevos to be proud of
when bragging to your fishing buddies.
Take a whirl with this stuff. You may have to practice a few
times to get it perfect, but once you do let your imagination run wild.
