Glo Egg Minnow

Recommended Posts

I live in Louisiana and some how amassed a good amount of glo egg yarn. I fish alot of reds and bass. These work well.

 

Gamakatsu B10s? hook

Rabbit strip

trilobal chenille (got it from orvis)

Hackle

Glo egg yarn

Doll Eyes

 

Attach thread and tie in rabbit strip. Add weight before the rabbit if you want it.

Tie in chenille and palmer it. Then tie in a hackle.

Palmer hackle and secure it to the shank. Then pull the rabbit over and tie it down

Stack/spin egg yarn. I just spread the yarn into a cylinder, push the hook eye through the center and wrap it with a couple turns of thread. I also switched to GSP to do this. Tie off thread after done stacking. This is 3 separate clumps of egg yarn for the head.

Trim head with scissors. I like to do short on the bottom and sides, and a little taller on the top. Then i use markers to color the head. The bottom color is blue that i blended with my fingers. then the markings are made with black. It matched the rabbit strip...
