    Glow Bug Egg Pattern Instructional Video

    Fly Tying Patterns Egg patterns are a mainstay here in the Great Lakes. Learn to tie this easy pattern by watching this short online video.

    One of the most popular patterns for Salmon and Steelhead in the Great Lakes is the egg pattern. It is also one of the easiest patterns to tie once you understand the technique for working with yarn. Egg yarns are available in wide array of colors and you can make them in a variety of sizes.

    Ray Schmidt of Schmidt Outfitters in Wellston, MI, stopped by the shop this last season to share information on effective patterns and techniques for Manistee river steelhead. Here he ties up the yarn egg pattern and shows you how to manipulate the yarn to produce them on your own. You can use this pattern for both steelhead and salmon in a variety of colors.

    The blood dot is created by adding a small amount of different colored yarn to the top tie. You can vary the color combinations to your hearts content. Make sure you have plenty tied up as you will loose a bunch on hot salmon this fall.

    The video is off-line. Sorry for the inconvenience.
