With all the salmon in spawning an egg imitation is quite probably one of the best choices to have available right now, especially for Dollyvarden, SRC's and Steelhead too. I've tried all the well known types and had succes with them all over the years but I have found what I believe, and know from use, to be an easy, quick and killer egg imitation. I won't actualy call it a FLY but it sure works great on a fly rod! I was in Ted's the other day and saw a bunch of plastic eggs that are designed to be slid down a leader above a hook, "Troutbeads" they are called and come in various sizes and colors. Here is my little brainstorm.....or fart...or whatever. Take the hook and bead of your choice, hold the hook with a pair of pliers and heat it up, I do mine on a red hot electric range burner. Then holding the bead between your fingers, press the hot hook shank into the bead.....waaaaala! If you angle it just right and leave the drilled hole open at one end you can superglue in a little CDC to add the skein strip look. Anyway I think they are cool and I know they really work!
