How to Tie: Micro Egg Pattern

What You’ll Need

Hook

Standard Nymph #14- 20 or 200 R

Thread

Uni- Thread 6/0, red

YARN

McFly Foam, early girl

Step 1

Start with two pieces of McFly Foam that are approx. 2 inches long.

Step 2

Dress your hook with thread.

Step 3

Tie one piece of fly foam onto the opposite side of the hook from where you are sitting.

Step 4

Tie a post around the base of the foam.

Step 5

Before clinching the foam, move it to the side of the hook. You are basically creating a wing out of the foam when the fly is done.

Step 6

The next three steps are the mirror of what was done to secure the foam on the other side of the hook.

Step 7

Now you have the perfect “wing”.

Step 8

Carefully cut the base of each “wing”, trying to be as equal with both cuts.

Step 9

A perfect egg emerges that can easily be tied to a #18 or #20 hook.
