Glo bug type eggs are supposed to be easy to tie, but mine look thin and ratty, with the lead eyes I use for weight showing through compared to the tight and dense ones at the fly shop. What are the tricks for getting a nice dense clipped wool body? Do you use eyes or wrapped wire? Do you tie on wool for and aft of the weight? How much wool? How to you compact the wraps? I've been using #8 TMC 2457 and have been hooking steelhead but losing too many. I have tried going up to a #6. Would I have better luck with a straight eyed hook like the TMC 105, or are there circle or octopus hooks that work better?
