A Steelhead caught on a Glow Bug Egg Yarn Fly …

There’s no disputing it — Glow Bug Egg Yarn Flies are some of the most inexpensive and easiest fly fishing flies to ever come out of a vice.

But, just because these flies require little effort to tie doesn’t mean that they are not worth your time.

Yarn eggs are an extremely productive fly for catching just about any type of trout or salmon that swims.

Yarn egg patterns are mainly used during the steelhead runs of early spring when fish tend to pool up to spawn.

Drifting egg flies to steelhead that have travelled up the river can provide for a very exciting day on the water.

The strategy behind egg fishing is simple.

Trout eat the eggs that get washed away from the beds as eggs contain high amounts of protein and carbohydrates.

Fish spend a tremendous amount of energy getting to the beds and choosing a mate, so an easy high-energy meal like eggs rarely gets passed up.

Additionally other trout such as browns and rainbows will stage just below the beds of the larger fish waiting for their eggs to come free during the spawning process.

Since each different species of trout and salmon will have a different coloured egg, it is a good idea to try and tie a few eggs in each of the respective colours.

It is amazing how picky fish can become with eggs, selecting only certain types and sizes from all the numerous eggs drifting downstream.

Egg flies should be tied in orange, pink, white and yellow with a dot of offsetting colour to duplicate the oil droplet that occurs in natural eggs.

To fish yarn egg patterns, simply imitate natural eggs by dead drifting the fly on or near the very bottom.

Natural eggs will never be floating in the middle of the current and fish will not rise to take yarn eggs floating by.  Try drifting yarn eggs early this season and see how productive they can really be.
