"All it takes is one fool to be standing arround doing something, for a bunch of other fools to join in"......a quote from an old Newfoundlander I met fishing in the pooring rain

Hey egg guys. We have an egg swap going on with openings still avaiable. Lets fill these up! Tie 12 any type egg pattern and get 12 back. You may get that egg pattern or color combo that nobady really fishes on your waters and tear them up. Go to the swap page for more details and sign up.

This is how i tie my glow bugs, it's quick and turns out some great lookin flies.
Take 5 pieces of glo bug yarn twice the length of the shank. Now put Stack 2 pieces on top of the other 3 pieces like a pyramid and pinch them together(if you want a dot make sure the dot color is the top two pieces). At the middle of the hook take two ligh wraps of kevalar thread over the middle of the pinched yard and then sinch down as tight as possible. Take a extra wrap and then tie forward and finish off the thread. Finall Using a Large sharp scissor Pull the yarn up as one as hard as you can and make one sharp cut about a 1/3 of the way up the yarn. It's important that you only make one cut so you need good scissors.

Like Sorearm says, the fibers get stuck on the teeth or rough jaws of a fish easier than most other fibers used.
I tie up some crayfish patterns with the Mcfly foam, and believe that fish hang on for a second longer, just what I need for a hookup.
